My passion is creating abstract seascape paintings in oils. I live near the East coast of the Norfolk Broads. Walking meditations around Trimingham, Winterton, Caister beaches inspire my work. I use a bright colour palette to capture coastal erosion and the rugged beauty of the area. The paint itself is presented in layers, by working on several canvases at a time I revisit each one in turn until it feels finished. The outcome is often a long way from the starting point, however initial colours radiate through from the scratchy style mark making.
In addition, sketchbooking is a big part of the initial research. I try to sketch wherever I go walking and these drawings have been popular in their own right. I am happy to undertake commissions of local Broads scenes in Pen and Ink and/or watercolour. The current circumstances have allowed me to create an illustrated book entitled An artists' guide to walking Four Seasons at Fairhaven Garden. Which will be available in Spring.
At present I am able to offer private art tuition and classes of 1-2 people in my spacious Upton studio. Choose from either Pen and Ink improvers, Watercolour kickstart or abstract oil painting experiments. Classes are 3 hours. Call to discuss your interest 07891 571263
