Possibly the most recognisable mountain in the world; The Matterhorn is awe inspiring to say the least and for that reason I had to paint it. The crisp mountain air of the Alps meant I wanted to paint this scene with perfect blue skies to contrast against the snow covered slopes of the horn shaped monolith.
From a young age, I developed a fondness for wildlife and dramatic landscapes from spending lots of time in woodland around Horsham and visits to the South Downs. As I got older, my interest grew and trips to Snowdonia and The Lake District really cemented my love for the great outdoors, inspiring my art today. Capturing dramatic landscape scenes, often in moody weather; I paint using oils, in a bold, loose realism style.
