I am a landscape artist. I take my inspiration from nature and The Peak District. I poke about in the heather and bracken whilst the sheep and the hawks ignore me. I return to my studio to paint the sky, the stone walls and the hillsides. Lately I have added a love of life drawing to my portfolio. Using charcoal to make people of all shapes and sizes come to life on my drawing board. Maybe one day the two will meet and my life models will find themselves transported to wild places . .
