My painting practise is split into two disciplines. The first is working from life, on location or “en plein air”. I travel around with my pochade box in a backpack, looking for the perfect view or composition and paint small pieces to capture the moment in a single sitting. I adore the outdoors, just being out there, immersed in the elements is as rewarding to me as making the paintings themselves.

The second discipline is studio work. I love painting large and when I’m indoors I have the time, space and controlled lighting to change pace and slow down. I plan my compositions carefully and paint in 4-5 layers over the course of many days. Studio painting is where I get to use all the info and skills I have collected whilst working outside and focus more on scale, impact and a singular vision.

I live in Bristol, U.K. with my partner and two children.
