“The inspiration for my art comes from walks along the coast and through the countryside of Dorset making sketches which capture the essence of the places seen.
The constantly changing colours and textures of the area, the weather, the buildings and the people are all captured in my paintings. I work in oil, collage and also use printmaking methods such as collagraph and etching.”
