Award winning pastel paintings capturing the spirit and atmosphere of the Peak District landscape.  Open moorlands, dramatic skylines, shady woodlands and wild places provide rich sources of inspiration for light-filled paintings.

I walk local woods and nearby hills most days, year round, observing, absorbing and recording seasonal changes.  In the studio I combine pastel with other media, looking for visual harmonies in a natural world undergoing dramatic change, aiming to create expressive images that will resonate with the viewer.
