I have  been addicted to soft pastels for well over a decade now . I find their versatility, immediacy and vibrancy hard to beat

I really enjoy sketching and painting en plein air . Painting this way gives me the opportunity to admire some of our amazing vistas, and some more ordinary views that I find are just as paintable.

My studio based work can be more abstract  - whether it be teasels or some poppy seed heads.

You will find a selection of paintings in my gallery . My blog is a diary of things I am working on and exhibitions I am in. Please feel free to contact me.
