I am a painter, teacher and workshop leader. I mostly paint landscapes and wildlife, and this takes me to the wild places of Northern England and Scotland.

I work best outside and have developed practical ways to continue painting in all weathers. These are the most intense times, balanced by work consolidated back in the studio.

I paint directly, rarely making conscious attempts to "interpret" what I experience.

I hope my work reflects my delight and a deep sense of the privilege of being in these places and encountering their birds and animals.
