Light and atmosphere coupled with a life-time obsession with thoroughbreds and racing are what inform my art. I am a painter in oils first and foremost and for the past couple of years I have started to move away from purely representational art and become less precious about fine detail . Colour and light are now central to my work and I have started to move into the sphere of human portraiture, exploring the strong links between people and horses. Many of my paintings are as much about the jockeys and their silks as the horses and this is something I intend to explore further over the next few years.
In 2014 my painting ‘Youth & Experience' won Best in Show at the annual juried exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London and in 2016 I was elected a Full Member of the Society of Equestrian Artists.
