Artist Details

I am largely self-taught, and having enjoyed drawing from a young age; my early work was in pen and ink and scraperboard. I took up watercolours in 2001, and started painting again three years ago after an eight year break. I am inspired by the wonderful Dartmoor landscape, and aim to capture the beauty of the colours, texture and structure of the moor, especially the play of light and cloud shadows on the land. I also enjoy painting the lovely Devon coastline.
