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.
