About the Artist
Always drawn to light and shadow in the natural world, currently specialising in wildlife art, landscapes and pet portraits. I live in Sevenoaks where the beautiful countryside and wildlife never cease to inspire me!
1. Bluebells at Scathes Wood, Ightham
Oil on canvas, 60x90cm
The light, colour and scent of bluebells in the woods around Ightham were truly mesmerising in May. I wanted to capture the warm purple glow of that sunny morning.
2. Stealth Hunter, oil on canvas, 90x60cm
Birds are some of my favourite wildlife subjects, their diversity of form and colour offering so many artistic possibilities. This painting focuses on the power and speed of the barn owl in flight as it swoops down on its prey.
3. Morning Sun on the Meadow, 20x20cm, oil on canvas
One of a series of small meadow paintings. I'm fascinated by the changing colours of grasses and wild flowers according to light levels, weather and time of day.
