I am a Devon based painter and have been painting full time since 2007; a student of Louise Courtnell since 2015.Louise trained under her mentor Robert Lenkiewicz. Robert’s teaching concentrated on the understanding of tone which Louise has passed on through her own teachings.
I love to work from life as much as possible. Landscape for me, is about the experience of trying to put down on canvas, as much as I can see of what is in front of me, with changing light, weather and clouds, I hope to get an impression of a passage of time rather than a snapshot.
I have recently discovered a passion for still life.
I very much enjoy the feeling of calm and peace whilst I am painting them, I hope this comes across to the viewer.
