painting: oil painting and oils and cold wax

Explorative abstracts in oil and cold wax, plus portraits. Exhibiting with Riverside Arts, w/ends 2 and 3

I am pleased to exhibiting again with Riverside Arts this July, in one way or another, according to government guidelines. 

I continue to work with oil paint, cold wax and some mixed media.   Recent work includes semi-abstract paintings which reflect my experiences, both emotional and physical, of previous travelling in new and varied landscapes and habitats which have had a profound effect on me, alongside the continuing impact of the local Fenland environment. 

I love painting the human face, a never ending challenge of light, planes, contours, of capturing mood and character.  Last year I painted three portraits as part of the instagram #portraitsfornhsheroes initiative set up by Tom Croft artist, and am delighted that one of them was selected for publication in the book Portraits for NHS Heroes published by Bloomsbury.

I am a member of Cambridge Drawing Society and OuseLife.
