I'm a painter based in Hammersmith with a studio by Ravenscourt Park. I'm inspired by nature and music, particularly land and sea and I am endlessly fascinated by the horizon. My latest paintings are abstract sunsets using vivid colours to express light reflecting onto water. Many of them are painted after spending time by the River Thames as well as Cornwall and the South Coast.
I always listen to music when painting and feel that this has a strong influence on the finished work. I’ve chosen song lyrics from Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Crosby Stills & Nash, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, Pink Floyd and David Bowie amongst others to title my paintings. I feel that a snippet of a song lyric as a title gives the painting extra depth. Lyrics often jump out at me when I'm painting and seem to fit the artwork perfectly.
