My work is landscape based. It involves the layering of textures, paints and many different materials.

It draws inspiration from walking, especially  the Severn estuary the surreal landscape around Avonmouth docks. This is the landscape which I grew up in, we grazed sheep and cows on the semi wilderness areas, that then existed between the docks.

Memory and the landscapes intrinsic strangeness, hopefully become merged in the artefacts  produced.

I predominantly use the medium of pen and ink with the detail and the building up of shadows and depth with straight lines”.  The actual sizes of the pictures vary enormously. They all, however, no matter how large or small, contain the same singularly detailed and minute focused attention that I feel has become my hallmark.
