Private View Friday 3 March 7-9pm

“I have always been interested in field patterns, and how geology dictates the agriculture of a district. A lot of my work is based on walking, or even driving, through the landscape, trying to understand it, rather than from a static viewpoint. I draw outside, but then work in the studio, where my dominating interest is in form and colour.

 A parallel, but linked, seam of work loses the representational landscape elements to give way to untidy patchworks of colour. I play for hours with each of these, sometimes over years, until satisfied by a balanced composition. 

At the same time as following my own inclinations, I have accidentally become an illustrator. Time spent drawing outside led to noticing birds and their habitats, till they became an important ingredient in my work. Due to this, I was commissioned to illustrate the book of the Radio4 series ‘Tweet of the Day’, then to do a regular illustration for the ‘Bird of the Month ‘column in The Oldie magazine. I am also jacket illustrator for the two series: ‘British Wildlife Collection ‘ and ‘Encounters in the Wild‘.

The span of work between illustrating to order and the unlimited playing with colour suits my restless nature, as does working in a variety of media. When one vein becomes exhausted, another is ready and waiting.
