About the Hare

Influenced by the environment, natural structures, the formation of the landscape and the earths surface with its constantly developing forms carrying with it layers of history and the sequence of geologic events that happened in the past. Hared In The Clouds was inspired by geological rock formations and the natural lime stone strata found locally. 

I love to explore the locality, taking photos, collecting things I find along the way and visiting and revisiting the multitudinous and hugely varying scenery during the changes of the seasons. 

Hared In The Clouds has muddy paws and his nose high in the sky. I aimed to represent the layers and irregular, craggy shapes and varying tones which are a frequent and a beautiful occurrence across the Cotswolds and in particular the stratum!

I have been living and working as a practicing artist in the Cotswolds for nearly ten years. Prior to this I studied BA  Painting at the University of the Arts London. 

My work is based on Abstracted landscapes lingering somewhere between the indeterminable and representational, inviting the viewer to find their own interpretation and map out a personal narrative. 

Whilst maintaining more typical elements of landscape painting such as perspective and the horizon line. I like to engage with the ambiguous in my work, creating often dreamlike or oneiric landscapes which are contemplative and reflective.  

I am curious about the significance we attachment to places and what affects our emotions and senses relating to places, either visited and remembered or imagined. I want my paintings to act as an interface between what is seen and what is felt.
