Artist's Website
Much of my recent body of work is concentrated on large landscapes in oil. I am inspired by the pockets of space in and around cities - parks, commons, wasteland, docks - that act as buffer zones from the 24-hour clang and din. As an incessant doodler, I also fill copious notebooks full of quick line drawings; people standing at train stations, reading on buses, dogs in parks - I have a thing about drawing dogs. These I then develop into small pen, ink and watercolour illustrations. I grew up in Northern Ireland but have lived in London since 1996.
