A Joyful Sound
acrylic on panel 24" x 24"

Following on from a life-long love of drawing, I began painting while living in Wales, UK, in the 1990s.

Throughout my work, there is a strong sense of color and pattern, where soft edges meet hard lines, offering tangible evidence of a past career as a graphic artist, back when everything was still done by hand. Also a musician, my art and music inform each other in multi-faceted ways.

I explore multiple ongoing themes, including the natural elements and our relationship with them, that edge where the man-made organization of our lives meets the wildness of nature, a sense of place, habitat, architecture, identity and ancestral stories.

Selected artwork can be seen in person at:

I have recently relocated to Vancouver, Washington. You are welcome to visit my studio by appointment.
