I’ve always been interested in places where man and nature meet - the overlooked and unloved margins of our landscape. From deconstructed sheds to overgrown greenhouses, clearfell sites and field edges, my paintings explore nature's opportunistic reclaim of our managed landscapes; celebrating weeds and wildness, and beauty found in the unpredictable tangle of encroaching plant life.

I work in oils on paper pasted onto board, drawing into the wet paint with pencil. This technique results in a sketch-like finished work; the fragility and fluidity of the marks on paper echoing the temporary and peripheral nature of the places I paint.
