I am a Visual Artist based on Morecambe bay in Lancashire, North West England. A great lover of walking and the outdoors, I have spent many hours exploring, drawing, painting and photographing the wonderfully diverse landscapes within reach of my home here. Walking is central to my Art practice – a natural urge to be in the outdoors, combined with the curiosity to explore, discover and rediscover is the driving force behind the work.

Rural and agricultural land; limestone landscapes and mountainous areas, vast tidal mudflats and weatherbeaten coastlines, and the industrial and social history of the landscape continue to inform my practice. I am also interested in what it means to have a ‘sense of place’ and how developing a stronger ‘sense of place’ through exploration and discovery might manifest itself in the images that I create.

I practice drawing and photography on location as immediate ways to express lived experiences and imaginative moments using relatively simple tools. From these initial explorations I continue to make work in the studio. I’d like to capture the essence of these lived, inspired moments; whilst also investigating a more complex painting process. I am also interested in the therapeutic qualities of creativity, walking and the outdoors; and have become an advocate for their benefits to wellbeing
