    Contemporary Landscape Paintings 

 I am interested in noticing and expressing the feelings I experience when being in nature. I just love painting en plein air on Dartmoor and the river  Dart throughout the  year. Immersing  myself in the local wild places enables me to catch the fleeting sensory qualities of light and colour that most  affect  and move me. 
 Using mixed media and whatever is at hand frees me up to spontaneously evoke the joyful, poetic moments of the Devon landscape. In my own  contemplative awareness of the  pulse of the  land I invite you to reconnect with the mystical experiences of peacefulness, well-being and the  exuberance  of natural vitality that is abundant here.

 I am a finalist, with collaborating artist Jane Ellis, in the Devon Life Landscape Artist of the Year 2018 competition.

It doesn't have to be
the blue iris, it could be
weeds in a vacant lot, or a few small stones; just
pay attention, then patch
 
a few words together and don't try to make them elaborate, this isn't a contest but the doorway
into thanks, and a silence in which another voice may speak.
