Paintings and Drawings of the American and British coasts



New! Original hand-pulled limited-edition screenprints - now in Art Prints.

DRAWING Group exhibition at Palace Hub Gallery, Redcar, N Yorkshire, 22 November - 21 December. See Exhibitions.


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.
