Born in Hereford, educated in Cardiff and London, I am a professional Swansea-based contemporary artist, specializing in oil paintings. I also spend part of the year in Burtonport, Donegal, Ireland.

All my life I have loved being creative – whether it was drawing and sketching as a teenager, drawing with oil pastels and screen print-making in my 20s and finally focusing on photography and oil painting in adult life. I originally trained as a professional Medieval Historian and then worked in Secondary Education for almost two decades until my life took an unexpected turn. On 29th February 2012, I was involved in a car accident which led to me developing PTSD and having a breakdown. My emotional recovery was long and exhausting and is still ongoing. Art was an essential part of that process and still is. I have been a professional artist since 2013, part-time until summer 2016 when I became a full-time professional artist.

I paint most days. My work focuses on light and color, whether I paint rural landscapes, urban streets, seascapes or figurative work. I like to paint people walking around in their everyday lives, painting moods, anticipations, and atmospheres, trying to express presence and pathos. I notice things that others miss. I am fascinated by light and color but also details.

In my work, I am drawn to light and shadows and how they shape our emotions. I remember visiting the South of France as a teenager and being mesmerized by the dazzling light, I have been attempting to capture that excitement about light in my paintings ever since. I aim to make people look at the ordinary and see the extraordinary beauty in it.

Much of my work is inspired by American and Canadian artists, mainly American realist painters who paint the quiet, the spacious and the still and revere a certain treatment of light and color. Artists such as Edward Hopper, Jim Holland, John Register, Frank Hobbs as well as Contemporary Minimalists such as Christopher Benson, Leah Giberson, Tom McKinley, Mitchell, Johnson, Jessica Brilli and Emmett Kerrigan. I aim to bring an American sensibility to a Welsh urban and rural landscape.

My work is in hundreds of private collections around the world; UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Belgium, Malta, Canada, USA, Peru, Singapore, South Africa, and Australia. My work is also available in John Lewis.

I have long enjoyed Emma Cownie's art blog and marveled at her paintings. She captures landscapes, seascapes, people, animals, and the play of light so well. Since I will most likely never visit the Gower Coast, the photographs and paintings, along with the descriptions of her travels, take me "across the pond" to a beautiful place.
