I'm a fine art photographer and painter based in Warwick. My work is inspired by nature and the land and seascapes of the United Kingdom, but I'm not a traditional landscape artist. Instead, I prefer to pick out a few elements of the scene and emphasise the shapes and colours that first caught my eye. My finished images typically have a restricted palette and a dreamlike quality.
Born in Leamington Spa, I've been painting and taking photographs for over 30 years.
I was initially attracted to photography at primary school when I saw the magical process of images appearing on paper in the darkroom. I got my first digital camera in 2000 and I've been working exclusively in digital format since 2005. I love the way digital photography has given me the opportunity to explore my creativity in ways that were impossible with film. I got my licentiateship of the Royal Photographic Society in 2007, and ran my own photography business for 10 years. I now concentrate on fine art photography.
I took a break from painting when my children were young as I found it difficult to find enough quality time to produce the work I wanted. I began working with watercolours and acrylics again a few years ago, using the photographs I take on my regular walks as inspiration.
I sell my paintings and photographs in various sizes as photographic prints as well as limited edition giclee prints on fine art paper. My limited edition prints are signed, numbered and supplied unframed, ready for your favourite framer to frame them to suit your decor. Limited editions also come with a certificate of authenticity. All my prints are printed by a professional printers using archival quality inks and paper so you will be able to enjoy them for many years to come.
