ARTIST INFO

My painting practice covers both work on canvas and on paper. In many ways the scenes I paint are based on something tangible, but there is a leaning on memory and a heightened sense of colour that leaves the paintings somewhere in the realm of the remembered and unreal. Narrative plays a part and for these two postcard paintings I took inspiration from poetry and music alongside many other sources.

About the postcard artworks

Evening dove' & 'Lilac tree' - these scenes are part imagined, part remembered and part observed. Two moments captured in time, both have an air of narrative. And a sense of escape ..."
