I live by the sea and take inspiration from the natural world around me. My work begins with sketches and plein air paintings, often finished in my studio space in Hove with a nice cup of tea.

Capturing the ever-changing essence of water; movement and stillness, calm and danger, and beauty, has been a main preoccupation of mine for several years. I paint mainly in acrylic and like to experiment and add texture and depth to my work with mixed media and collage.
