I am a landscape artist, specialising in acrylics. Having been born and raised on the Solway Plain, Cumbria and now living in Ilkley, Yorkshire, it is these wild northern landscapes which inspire me the most.

  

My painting process is always driven by my love of the natural environment - the changing seasons and vast northern skies.  Much of my current work is inspired by the wild and wonderful Ilkley Moor above my home and studio.  I walk it in all weathers, soaking up the sights, sounds and emotions.

I often paint from photographs but when creating more abstract pieces, I rely on my memories and my emotional response to them.
