I am a professional artist working in Darlington. I mainly work in line and watercolour to capture the urban and historic landscapes of the North East and Yorkshire. My work is typified by the amount of white space I use in my compositions. I like to give the viewer the opportunity to engage with my work. I also work with linocut and drypoint to produce originals prints. I was a contestant on Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year, reaching the semi-final in 2018. I regularly work local art groups with workshops and demonstrations.
