I choose to paint Landscapes because I have always loved nature and I want to make it a part of my life.

The process starts with me driving through the Berkshire countryside. I do a rough sketch of a scene and take some photos to work on it at home. I start by using simple pencil strokes on canvas to map out the structure of the landscape. I apply different shades of pastel greens in oil and add more colours into the mix. By using lighter strokes and pastel colours I create paintings that are easy on the eye and soothing. My works are special and of high value because they are handmade.

I would like people to think of my art as scenes they can relax to and reminds them of a special place or time in their lives.

MY STORY

My love for painting started when I was a child. I had a very nomadic childhood and grew up travelling around Europe .

I absolutely loved that way of living and hope to have a similar lifestyle someday.


My travels opened my eyes to the beautiful world around me and I observed from a young age as a passenger in the family car whilst we were driving from Turin to Almadraba in Spain how the landscapes from country to country were vastly different from each other, and how a country is defined by its landscape, and how vast open spaces make me feel free. I found it fascinating and i still do, and that’s what inspired me to paint landscapes.

THE PROCESS

The process starts with me driving through the Berkshire countryside.

I start by taking a series of photographs to use as reference in the studio. I map out the structure of the painting using simple pencil strokes on canvas. After the painting has been blocked in, I apply different shades of colour in oil and transform the painting into a tranquil scene.

People say they can imagine relaxing under one of my paintings with a good book and nice cup of coffee
