artist and teacher
I am a painter and printmaker who works in all sorts of media and enjoys the excitement that develops as paint creates shape and form and it is applied to whatever the surface. Having been a large abstract painter prior to moving to Devon I find the colour and atmosphere in the Devon landscape both beautiful and a challenge to the painter. The rolling hills and valleys of north Devon, the colours textures and shapes of both Dartmoor and Exmoor have inspired my senses and lead me to represent the beauty in what I see. My work has developed more traditionally but continues to dwell on the excitement of surface and texture. The flora and fauna of land farmed organically in Devon and the effect man it has on the landscape is of particular interest to me having farmed my own land in North Devon. I have been Head of Art and Design at several secondary Schools and Team leader for Art and Craft Tutors in Adult and Community Learning throughout Devon
