The latest in my series of Delphinium floral paintings has been created with a mixed media approach of using watercolours enhanced with gouache, inks and pastels.
I have just bought my first sweet peas so keep an eye out for these appearing in the next few paintings!

I am lucky to live in a stunning part of the world where the coastline and the fells of South Cumbria are on my doorstep. So, join me on this visual journey as I explore and document my interaction with both the world inside and outside my studio.
Having originally trained as a graphic designer I feel that my art still shows traces of this in its strong use of composition, shape and colour, whether subtle or vibrant. Whatever subject or starting point I choose I like the work to develop and emerge from the ongoing dialogue created between myself and the emerging painting or drawing.
