April 2015

I live and work in our wonderful seaside town of Whitstable and am influenced by the colours of the sea and sky and often paint the view of my beach hut on West beach.  Each painting is different as the light and weather change constantly.

I am very interested in people and the things that they do, or the things that they have around them.

My most recent work is about performers and how they take on a role or personality when performing to an audience.  Many of my paintings attempt to convey a stillness and in 'Waiting in the wings' in the moments before or after the performance.  Sometimes it is the energy or concentrated effort of the performance that I try to depict.
