Landscape and architecture have been lifelong passions. I live in the Pennines and this has had an influence on my work. My work is based on layering oil paint and gesso. An images is built up and disrupted as layers are applied and removed. Texture and a sense of touch is paramount in this process. Primarily process driven, my work plays with the way paint settles and layers creating interactions between forms and colours. More aesthetic and sensual than conceptual allowing interpretation by the viewer. Universal forms include subliminal influences of landscape, architecture and personal memory. Born in Manchester, living in Saddleworth I hold two masters degrees in Art and Architecture from the universities of Manchester and Liverpool.
