Green Forest Calling is a 30x40x1.5 inches tall green painting of a path through a green forest in Sussex in springtime. It was painted after a walk I took near Hartfield in late May. The bluebells were still out and the trees were bright green lush in every shade from yellow, to gold to emerald green. This particular patch of forest has very tall trees but well spaced so it is very like walking through a cathedral with stained glass green windows. The way out of the wood looked bright white as a field of white cow parsley was just beyond it and that added to the magic quality of the walk. I am often nervous in woods and forests as I get lost very easily and because some of them have a scary atmosphere. This wood though, is a favourite of mine as it is welcoming and it likes me. I imagine the spirits of this forest are kind ones. The painting is semi abstract in style and is on wide edge canvas, white edges, no frame needed, ready to hang on the wall.

I am a professional artist based in Sussex and I paint large original landscape and seascape paintings in oil on canvas.
My painting style is a fusion of Expressionist, Impressionist, Semi-abstract, Art Deco, a little Art Nouveau and whatever mood I am in that day.
I am inspired by the patterns of nature and the energy, colours and spaces of the landscapes and animals around me.
I like to think that paintings have ‘little souls’ woven into them by artist’s and that these are what call to a viewer (or not as the case may be) and give a painting presence and desirability.
All of my paintings have a story added in to them - sometimes humorous, sometimes mystical, sometimes with a message of hope or encouragement.
My aim is to make art that offers a glimpse of spaces and possibilities where people can escape the manic pace of life and imagine themselves somewhere better – even if just for a little while.
