Artist Biography:

It’s such a great feeling to complete a painting and translate the scene in my head into something others can share. I love the Pennine hills around my home. I was brought up here and after several years elsewhere I am lucky to have returned. There is so much to see, so many different shapes and colours, changing light, different moods, seasons, weather, grand vistas and minute detail. Inspiration comes somewhere on most outings and I try to capture the temperature, the wind, the emotions as well as the view. Largely self taught, I loved painting as a child and it has stayed with me despite work and other commitments filling up my time. Now I am fortunate enough to be able to call myself a full-time artist and fill my days painting or thinking about the scenes around me.
