I lived in a sleepy village in South Wales, until the age of 11. Then I moved with my family to North London, because of my father's new job in Westminster. After six years, just as I was getting used to city and suburban life, the family moved again, this time to Cardiff. These three different experiences of home have made me emotionally catholic in outlook.

The themes of my work can be either cityscapes, countryscapes, sea sides or mountains.The three paintings above are from my earliest memories, evoking a longing for home.
