Artist's Statement

I am currently creating a series of paintings themed on Birkenhead Park and the River Mersey.

My paintings are full of light and movement.  I usually paint with oils on canvas, working from my own photography and sketches.  My work is influenced mainly by Vincent Van Gogh and Joseph Mallord William Turner, especially Turner's paintings of Venice. 

Venice is a long way from Oxton where I live, but Liverpool's internationally acclaimed waterfront lies just over the River Mersey.  Birkenhead Park is an important local urban green space, and its two lakes, open meadows and copses of mature trees, and the wildlife which makes its home there, offers a wide range of subjects to paint.
