The subject matter for my paintings is whatever is around me. Objects and ceramics I’ve collected all my life. The fruit and vegetables we might be eating that day. Seasonal flowers. And the landscapes around me, now mainly in the West Country. There is always something that, regrouped, or in a new light or in a changed season, makes me want to paint it.
I work in both acrylic and oil. I was trained at Heatherley’s School of Fine Art in London.
If you were to ask me who are my favourite painters at the moment, I’d say Nicolas de Stael for his abstracted figures and landscapes, Joan Eardley, the Scottish painter, for her free and loose style in her wild landscapes, and Morandi for the simplicity and neutral tones of his still life. All very last century!
I have exhibited in South and West France, London and most recently in Wiltshire – at Stourhead and at Beaumont Gallery in Mere.
