Original Art

About...


 ...fragile edges & layers, like where land meets the sea, the bleak, weathered & 'just out of reach' remembered trace 


Working from my home studio next to the wide shores of Morecambe Bay in the NW UK

Inspired by surface, trace & the layerings of time, my art often has a nostalgic atmosphere evoking memories and imaginative reflection. Hovering uncertainly in real space and painted with a subdued and muted palette my paintings reflect my love of exposed coastal shorelines, landscapes, tidal flows and the inevitable passing of time
