The Ancestral Woods Collection.

I’m so excited to bring to you my latest collection of work.

The Ancestral Woods collection is inspired by research into my family history.

Standing on the land where my Great Great Grandfather worked as a woodsman and where generations before him had lived I was inspired to put down on paper my emotions. I had a strong urge to make visual the powerful connection I felt as I stood near the small church in West Harling. With the sun on my face, listening to the wind through the trees, the echo of their voices danced across the years and sparked in me a new obsession. The Woods.

“Since that day a deep desire to walk among trees was born in me and as an artist, it naturally followed that I had to paint them”

This collection is made up of watercolours and oils, large and small. There is a little piece of my heart in each of them, what I felt as I walked in my ancestors footsteps. I hope that you love them as much as I have loved creating them for you.

Prints are available from £19.50 to £60, and originals from £95.
