How did it all begin?

I started taking photographs when I first went traveling to foreign places at the age of 16. My first love was always the countryside, the colours and shapes of the landscape and the images that I can produce as a result of timing and chance as well as a little skill. All my photographs on display are taken within Dorset because I think I am so fortunate to live in such a fabulous part of England. In 2010 I cleverly managed to fall down the stairs at home. I was pretty immobile for 6 months before it decided to start healing and I started painting. That was the start of my dabble with oils. It was a little time before I explored the freedom of painting outside. Despite the extreme cold at times, I was exhilarated.

I trained at Weymouth College and specialised in sculpture. Always keen to get my hands 'into stuff', I decided that it was still possible to produce landscapes of my favourite coastline and countryside but just in an unusual way. My method is to use drawings and photographs to start with and I am really keen to create a "relief" affect drawing the landscape out of the frame. There is a lot of squinting at the image to catch the shadows and of course then there is the long cutting out process with a scalpel. I feel it is all worth it and I am thrilled with the results so far. I hope you will be too.
