I am an artist and freelance costume maker based in Dorset and London and have recently returned to Dorset and immersed myself in the stunning vistas of the Purbeck landscape that have become a huge inspiration to my art practice.

I make most of my work ‘en plein air’ enjoying the energetic, immediate and visceral quality it brings to my drawings, evoking the atmosphere of the Dorset landscape through expressive mark making and the use of rich, natural colours. I often explore the use of white space, allowing the landscape to appear like an explosion out of the frame. My artwork often invites the viewer to use their imagination and personal emotional response to interpret their vision of the contemporary landscapes.
