As an artist living in North Wales with Scottish Highland ancestry, I feel a deep connection to the land.
My paintings are mainly created using acrylics and palette knives, frequently incorporate textural qualities to create a feel of the inherent structures of the landscapes.
Rather than producing photo-realistic works, with my paintings I'm trying to capture the essence of a place and time.
Snowdonia, North Wales and Scotland are my inspiration.
Beautiful landscapes and moody skies fuel my passion.
The wild untamed nature of their rugged mountains, rivers, lakes and coasts, appeals to the artist in me.
I'm always in awe of the grandeur of the mountains and captivated by the forever changing light as it plays across the landscape throughout the seasons, but for me winter in particular is a very special time in the mountains.
