I was strongly influenced by the

brooding mood of Rembrandt’s work

I began to paint in 2010 during a spell living in Amsterdam. Spurred on by the dark, quiet beauty of a Dutch winter, I was strongly influenced by the brooding mood of Rembrandt’s work.


I have lived in many places, owing to my father’s career as a Surgeon in the British Army. Perhaps, as a result, the focus of my work is diverse. I enjoy producing both representational and abstract work. I bounce around from painting landscape en plein air, to painting a bull in my studio in London. I am particularly drawn to the natural world, the great outdoors.


Wherever I have lived, be it Hong Kong, Singapore, Cyprus, Germany, France, the Netherlands or the UK, I have always felt the pull of nature, and enjoy the opportunity to observe. In both my abstract and representational work, I like to investigate the dynamics of what is in front of me – the shapes, the light, the negative spaces – and then manipulate it, whether it is through form or colour.


I vary my media from acrylic and oil paints, to charcoal, pastels and printmaking. I live and work in London and Dorset, UK. I am currently working on a body of work focussing on urban landscape.
