Meet The Artist…
My paintings are contemporary, colourful and are a reflection of me.
In my studio I’m driven to play and experiment, to create the painting that is going to be the best one I’ve ever made which truly expresses the creative me. I’m always looking for something that I’ve not yet found, experimenting with materials and pushing at boundaries, not knowing what’s going to happen and how paintings will turn out. I try to let go of conventions and be adventurous, driven by my curiosity to create exciting and interesting art and I hope this comes across when viewing my work. It’s not easy and each painting is a struggle, some more so than others.
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 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’m best known for creating original dynamic 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 will offer you an opportunity to surround yourself with imagery that will give you pleasure, create an emotion or stir a 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 often 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 am excited by the feel of a brush, the quality of a canvas or support, 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.
