Chesterfield / Painting
Although I try to be versatile as an artist, I believe my best work to be landscapes, especially in pastel.
I am fortunate to live close to the Peak District so it is not surprising that a lifelong love of walking inspires my work. So much pre-history is present in Derbyshire, I feel the pulse of my ancestors as I walk the moors. Then I return to my easle to paint what this ancient land has shown me.
There is a saying among walkers - Take only photographs, leave only footprints. I would leave also my pictures as a lasting tribute to the place and time I inhabit.
