Artist Statement

I am a practice-led oil painter who utilises both studio and plein air techniques to facilitate both realistic and impressionistic styles of landscape painting. I am interested in contemporary issues pertinent to our everyday life. Recently, I have been focused upon the experience of suburban driving how that translates into painting.
