My atmospheric and ethereal paintings are a response to my love of the natural environment in all its seasons, throughout the U.K.
From my childhood home in Surrey, the access to the dense forests of Holmbury and the rolling hills of the North Downs, helped create a strong passion for nature’s colours and forms through Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer. As I continue to reside across the UK, the location subject matter of inspiration changes, but a common denominator of forests, mountains and hills remains. Painting rural landscapes is a way of connecting and showing her appreciation for our fragile natural world, but the visual recreation of locations are also sentimental places for me, where each image holds a unique story to accompany it.
Over the past 5 years, my artwork has shown a strong influence from traditional landscape artists of the 18th and 19th Centuries, with whom she shares the view that light is the real subject of landscape and hopes to occupy the space between romantic English Realism and Impressionism. Through painting light, atmosphere, and perspective with accuracy, I endeavor to create a sensual and emotional illusion of place for the viewer.
In my recent residency at Downside School, I continue to find inspiration in the beautiful and changeable landscapes of Somerset, where I later held my first solo retrospective exhibition ‘Lungs Of Our Earth’.
