Laying down my brushes…

…because its time to start clearing the studio, ready for opening to the public this weekend!

I’ll be showing new and old work, sketchbooks and greetings cards featuring some of my favourite pieces.

Much of my recent work has focused on the word ‘erosion’. It can have a negative connotation but the natural erosion of the landscape can also produce some beautiful outcomes. Waterfalls result in interesting textures and profiles where they wear away rock over time.

I’ve also been looking at the landscape around me, especially the ‘Wiltshire clumps’, small knots of trees that stand sentinel over the down lands. Climate change and natural wastage has sadly eroded many woods but the distinctive profiles are still to be seen throughout the county if you look to the horizon.
