I am an oil painter with a passion for plein air. I have adapted techniques learnt during two years of classical art training to fit the immediacy needed to capture a scene on location.
When I’m out painting it's all about trying to get down the essence of the scene. Light, mood, structure and action are just some of the components that make plein air painting challenging and irresistible. Not to mention I love the places painting takes me.
In the studio I work on Still life set ups, often floral in nature. With these there is more time and less distraction than out in the field. But I still like to work in the same alla prima style.
Recently I have started to experiment with enlarging and recomposing plein air studies into larger works of art.
