I am a painter and etcher and I live and work in Burnt Yates near Harrogate.

I graduated in Fine Art and I specialise in etching and painting. My work is mainly inspired by my immediate surroundings, sometimes flowers, the garden, animals or still lives.

Working from life, I explore my ideas through painting and etching. I observe subjects in depth and and recurring themes often develop. I also keep a daily sketchbook, tiny studies to document the days.

Some of my recent work includes exploration of the beauty of natural forms in the garden, memories and the passing of time.

The processes of painting and etching are those of discovery and one of my aims is to create balance and harmony.

As an etcher, the physical processes of working on the etching plate and the infinite possibilities of etching methods are as important to me as the subject matter. In both painting and etching I strive to achieve a sense of balance and harmony.

I have exhibited widely including being selected for the Laing Landscape Exhibition, (prize winner), The National Print Exhibition, Mall Galleries, London, The British International Mini Print Exhibition and International Mini Print, Norwalk, U.S.A. Recently I have been selected to show etchings at the International Mini Print Exhibition in Norwalk U.S.A

This is the third year that I have taken part in North Yorkshire Open Studios, this year I'm sharing an exhibition with three other artists at Number6 Gallery in Pateley Bridge and also showing work at Yorko Gallery Harrogate.
