Paintings and Drawings of the American and British coasts

 

 

Now in Scarborough! Officially a Yorkshire artist, I relocated from London to the seaside in July. Thank you all for your support! I'm now working on paintings based on the cliffs and sea on this part of the coast in the new studio.

The paintings are all about spaces of line, colour and light rather than direct landscape. I combine the changing luminous qualities near the sea with hints of the physical structures of coastal geology – cliffs, bedding and eroded rock formations – to create ethereal arrangements aspiring to the Sublime. To create a impression of something familiar yet out of reach, landscape with overwhelming sensations of light or space.

As an American-born British artist, I identify very strongly with the British tradition for landscape painting while retaining a certain "midwestern" eye for  landscape with flat perspective and vast open spaces.
