Born in Devon, Matt’s work has a strong affinity with the South West. Self-taught, he has combined his intuitive and expressive approach with a commitment to learning the traditional and technical aspects of drawing and painting.

Inspired by the dynamic effects of light and atmosphere, his oil paintings seek to evoke a strong sense of place. His process involves working with tonal sketches to make compositional decisions, before using oils on board. Matt explores the space between realism and semi-abstraction, simplifying and deconstructing form in varying degrees through his painterly visual language.

Matt is an Associate member of the South West Academy of Fine and Applied Arts. He has also exhibited with Exeter Open Studios and The Marine House at Beer. He is a member of The Rational Painters and The Devon Artist Network.
