Ghost Fields

I live in North Shropshire and am a full time artist.


My main preoccupation is with humans in the landscape, as part of the landscape; and as part of the natural world which we increasingly observe, several steps removed, on our screened devices.


In particular I am interested in the marks we have made and continue to make on the landscape; the history of the marks and the way they develop and change, both for good and for ill.


I take commissions for a variety of subjects; animals, people, houses and gardens; and most recently a mural for a child's bedroom.


Currently I am following the construction of a new Long Barrow at Soulton Hall. I will be producing sketches and paintings inspired by this exciting project.


I am also working on a project initiated by Suzanne and Jake Tumnus called 'Where Dragons Lead.' This project, funded by the Arts Council, is based in South Shropshire and investigates the history of a particular area through story and music, I am providing a visual element.
