I’m based in East Yorkshire with two boys, two dogs and my ever-supporting, long suffering and demonstrably better half, Catherine.

Like many artists I’m inevitably drawn to the sweep of big skies, the shore, storms, hills and mountains - the places that make us feel insignificant in the eye of nature. But, in my heart the landscape is made from the unnoticed details - the commonplace, the ordinary and the overlooked. The forms, colours and intricate structures of the tangle of hedgerow, copse or dyke edge have a deep and almost obsessional lure for me. And, I have to admit I have a particular and quite peculiar thing for trees without leaves. Trying to capture (and share) some of this unfashionable view of the world is my tiny rebellion.
