About The Artist


‘I am a multi-media artist living and working in Dronfield. When painting, I use layers of oils, waxes and occasionally gold leaf to build interesting abstract surfaces.  I am interested in the power of landscape to evoke the imagination, stories and the sublime*. Although some work is directly set in the Peak District of Derbyshire, I like to build in abstraction and play with forms, shapes and colour to create multiple possibilities for the viewer. * Wordsworth said of this sense of the sublime “something…whose dwelling is the light of setting suns … the guardian of all my heart and soul” from “Above Tintern Abbey”).    I usually have my own narrative about the piece, which often develops as I work and I think it is important that those taking the time to look make up their own mind about its meaning.  I hope you enjoy looking at the work.
