My still lifes are based upon aerial photographs taken using natural light to create dramatic shadows, therefore exploring my main interests of space, colour and texture.

I work in layers, building up the image with varying thickness of paint, allowing each layer to be completely dry before continuing, and finally finishing with glazing. The glazing makes an enormous difference to the painting as a whole, really bringing out the colour and depth to the finished image.

I use a macro lens to enhance and intensify the richness of the subject, enlarging detail and creating a more abstract feel to the images.

I also enjoy working in different scales. My work in monotypes, which I sometimes use to inform my paintings, creates unexpected textures and marks, which are difficult to achieve when using oil on canvas. I like to think of them as small, unique paintings.
