I have always loved painting and followed it with passion thought my life including A’ levels, Art Foundation and have a Degree in Fine Art.
I finished university in 1995 and have continued painting ever since; the majority of my work has been for private buyers although I have done several commissioned pieces for corporate clients.
When undertaking commissions for specific spaces I prefer to visit and observe the surroundings in order to visualize the finished work, taking into account the atmosphere, lighting, colours and ambiance of peoples houses.
I work with several different mediums to create colourful abstract creations on canvas, using acrylic, tissue paper, thickened gesso, bleach and metallic dusts.
I generally start with the colours I wish to use to cover the canvas, then I will often use coloured tissue paper to build up depth and texture, repeating the process to conclusion.
I produce paintings that are eye-catching, original and vibrant. My pieces are richly textured and overflow with colour; I am constantly mixing and matching to find a balance of colour, depth and surface texture.
I consider my work complete only when I am no longer visually distracted by any elements within the canvas.
