Trees have always figured in my work. My preferred medium is watercolour but Gouache, watercolour inks, graphite and charcoal are now mediums I use frequently. This allows me to render trees with varying textural qualities, light and colour.

May in the woods, watercolour inks, 2018, 64 x 50 cm

Living near to Dartmoor with its wide variety of trees was (and is) a major source of my subject matter - from the tangle of a woodland to a loan oak on the edge of a field.

A tree presents challenges in both its form and texture. No tree is the same and its that individual character that lures me to represent it.
