I have worked full time as an artist since 1997, previously known for my contemporary seascapes and depictions of the natural world, working primarily in pastels; my work has, in recent months, taken a change of direction. Inspired by a return to studying the human form from life, my work has evolved to encompass a fluidity of movement. I am keen to explore a looser style to create this by using the form to construct a work which retains the anonymity of the individual and instead relies on the composition and flow for impact. I do believe that as an artist my work has to develop and change direction in order for me to be inspired and for my work to remain fresh. It is a process I enjoy and one I shall continue to explore, who knows where it may lead.
