Meet The Artist…
My paintings are contemporary, colourful and are a reflection of me. I’m inspired by the places I visit, the landscapes where I’ve lived. I try to capture the moment, the feeling of the place and the memories they have created.
My painting style blends a contemporary approach, traditional subjects and unusual modern textures, developed when studying for my BA (Hons) and Master’s degree in Fine Art. Using a variety of media, working methods and supports, I strive to create beautiful, vibrant and dynamic images from a truly original perspective.
I’m best known for creating original paintings filled with bright vibrant colour. As a colourist my love of dramatic and contrasting hues finds vivid expression in my paintings, using acrylics, oils and other media and a combination of techniques I create:
- Stunning dramatic cityscapes full of energy and bustling life
- Exciting land and seascapes inspired by places I love and have visited
- Vibrant botanicals that provide bursts of colour on even the dullest day
- Amazing abstracts that will entertain and surprise
In your home or office these artworks offer you an opportunity to surround yourself with imagery that will give you pleasure and stir an emotion or memory each time you view them. I want you the viewer to visually engage with my art. I hope I encourage you to see and explore subjects in a new light as well as appreciating their beauty.
I sometimes enhance my paintings by using a deep gloss finish which gives the colours a jewel-like intensity and the painting an added dimension. This high gloss finish is a particular feature of my Urbanscapes.
I love my job, I’m privileged to paint every day and have people like my work and want to own one of my paintings. I am excited by the feel of a brush, the quality of a canvas, the vivid pool of untouched paint straight from the tube, the texture of the mark I make, the smell of the studio and my next painting journey.
