My latest prints and paintings have been directly influenced by the woodlands and chalk paths surrounding my studio. Abstracted landscapes allude to contours and ancient paths etched into the nearby hills. Chalk is a strong presence in the soil in the Chilterns, and was quarried, used to draw on the hillside or make paths; this process informs much of my drawing. Recent work also imagines caves, and earthworks buried in the land; spaces where ancient ancestors may have been present.
This year I will be showing new paintings and prints in my studio as well as prints at Wycombe Arts Centre, and a series of chair portraits in Wycombe Museum's pop-up exhibition, inspired by their collections.
My studio is at the bottom of my back garden - two doors before the Le De Spencers Arms on Downley Common (handy for lunch if you book in advance). There is usually plenty of parking available opposite, just wander through the gates to the right of the house and follow the signs.
