I Live right on the edge of the Peak District National Park in Sheffield. When I was at art school here many years ago the landscape of the dark peak and the white peak, the gritstone edges and the pretty valleys inspired me to paint, almost to the exclusion of any other subject. These days, very little has changed. I paint flowers too but the landscape here remains a constant. Its beauty compels as ever.
However, I am not so much drawn to topographical detail when I'm painting. Rather, I pick elements of the scene and abstract them in to a different sort of 'whole'. I hope you like how I arrange them.
