I am a Northamptonshire artist who takes inspiration from the surrounding landscapes, seascapes and diverse wildlife of the British Isles. I layer my paintings by collaging the beautiful words of poets, to create intricate textures in a style reminiscent of linocut prints. This work is then made into prints on wood, greeting cards and tableware.
At BCTF I will be exhibiting selected works from my John Clare series, which features local scenes from the River Nene in Northamptonshire. Accompanying these are 'paintings' based on the poetry of the coast and old fishing boats.
Larger commissions include a portrait of Irish poet WB Yeats for the BBC One Show, and Agnes Nieman for Harvard University, USA.
