In my abstract geological landscapes, patterns are quietly immersed in colour. My work includes small scale paintings on paper, larger paintings on canvas, and collections of collages and book art.

In my abstract landscapes, geological patterns are quietly immersed in colour. Juxtaposed with my glazes of soft atmospheric paint layers, I use drawing or collage to draft half-obscured strata of rock and cliff. I lay hints of the deeper time in our surroundings. My take on a traditional landscape entwines ideas from the sublime artworks of 18th century exploration and the new sublime of modern science. Whether rover landscapes on Mars or the 100 million year-old cliffs surrounding Yorkshire, I want to share a curiosity about time, land, and space within an aesthetically beautiful space.

I start with drawings done on site in the landscape, either in my local Yorkshire coast environment or on geology trips to particular features. These drawings are then worked into more abstracted sketches, reducing the amount of information. Lastly they become small colour studies on paper for paintings. The final paintings are acrylics on canvas, done in a technique of very transparent washes or very lightly applied dry scumbles. This creates an illusion of depth through the layering of pure transparent colours rather than mixing paints.

My work has been shown at galleries across the country and is collected internationally. I’ve had to honour to exhibit with the Pastel Society, Royal Society of Marine Artists, the National Maritime Museum, Dulwich Picture Gallery, at the Derwent Art Prize, and galleries on Cork Street. Projects have included astronomy drawing workshops with the Essex Wildlife Trust, a drawing residency on the New Jersey coast, painting residency on the Newfoundland coast, and time at the National Maritime Museum using their historic Camera Obscura.

My practice is supported by my ongoing academic studies, done to enhance my understanding of the subjects in my artworks. I have degrees in physics, geology and space science from the Open University.
