My artwork is a visual expression of my mountaineering experiences, sometimes literally and other times in a more abstract fashion.

My aim is to depict the climbing world from a very personal perspective and, hopefully, present the viewer with an insight into the wonders and dangers of the mountain environment.

The natural properties of clay allow me to recreate the textures of rock, while paint and print allow me to express the feeling of the environment, the elements and the atmosphere surrounding the mountaineer.

 

At present I am enjoying making art again having had to take eight years out to care for a family member and am looking forward to exploring my themes and experimenting with various media in the future.
