I studied at Bolton Art College and am still based near Manchester. My work is inspired by my love of the northern English countryside, and the landscapes and architecture of other places that I have visited.
I particularly like perspective, angles, shadows and architecture – the murkiness of the industrial north, the crispness of fishing villages in Devon and Cornwall, and the majesty of modern cityscapes.
My work is about creating the feel of a place rather than a pictorial description, and I use lots of mediums to achieve this in an impressionist and gestural style.
I hope that my paintings evoke an emotional response from my audience.
