Born in London, I moved with my family to Sussex when I was 17. After travelling a great deal, studying and painting around work commitments, I moved back to Sussex very recently with more time to devote to working with different mediums and techniques. I have now moved to Rutland in the East Midlands.
My paintings are owned privately in East and West Midlands, Devon, Hertfordshire, London and Sussex. I have taken part in exhibitions in Eastbourne, Seaford, Frodsham Cheshire, and Lewes. My work has featured in several prestigious exhibitions in Sussex as well as in the East Midlands and the Home Counties.
Paintings and Inspiration
My paintings are the blending of the representational and the abstract, mainly in acrylics or mixed media. I aim to convey the essence and atmosphere of a subject, rather than total realism and find the flexibility and exciting possibilities of acrylics and mixed media very well suited to this. I use palette knives, large brushes (and small), and experiment with textures and paint, as well as soft pastels and inks, in order to try to get the desired effect. I have recently also started experimenting with oils.
Inspiration can come from a landscape, city scene or the sea – or the texture of a stone or tree. Anything that would encourage the viewer to stop, look and think.
More information on prices, other paintings and upcoming exhibitions are on my website or give me a call.
