I am a self taught artist and I have been painting since the 1990's.
Acrylics and inks are my favourite mediums, but I also use multimedia and oil paint and oil glazes.
My style is mostly contemporary and quite varied. I like to experiment with different styles, effects, materials and subjects. Exploring line and texture, mood and subject, reflections and shadings, colour and contrast to create unique artworks. Expressing a moment in time, a thought or memory, something we might all experience in our lives or something that is just simply beautiful. Some canvasses may be fully covered in paint, others may leave considerable empty space, this allows for more possibilities in the outcome of the works.
My subject matter usually involve the "Human-nature" and "Human vs Nature" concepts. I am fascinated by nature's design and the wonderful variations of the organic form that is visible all around us although we might not always notice or appreciate the beauty or fragility of it. I also incorporate faces and figures as part of my compositions. A human face and especially the eyes immediately engages with the viewer as we are naturally "programmed" to focus on and interpret facial expressions as part of our evolutionary process. Realism is not my aim but rather the mood that is created.
It will ultimately also be my aim to have the viewer appreciate nature through my works and to see our place on this earth as a place that is shared with other fantastic creatures and other wonderful aspects of the natural world, something as simple as a rock or a stretch of beach, flowing water and all the sounds we hear. We should live in harmony with nature, protect and cherish it, not try dominate and destroy it.
I have always been creatively minded and a nature lover. Making, breaking, collecting, picking, re-purposing, recycling were all part of my approach. Even though I have never studied art at secondary school it's always been an integral part of my life. I was quite uncertain of what to study after school and even what career I should follow.
Various group exhibitions since 1997
