Original Oil Paintings that are Contemporary, Inspiring & Emotive.
I originally trained as a graphic designer I took a leap of faith and returned back to my childhood passion for drawing and painting. Finding the right course to home my skills were the key to motivate me on this artistic journey.
My inspiration is now truly immersed in the classical style of oil painting. It centres around the aesthetic values of colour and unity of space, where the use of light and interpreted brush strokes to create my distinctive, contemporary style. I choose oils as my favoured medium. My portrait and figurative works are heavily influenced by John Sargent’s work and his remarkable technical ability to draw with his brush, while the landscapes are inspired by Turner’s wonderful interplay between light and colour. I continue to attend various courses that strengthen my focus on observation, drawing and application technics, which all help to enhance my visual representations. I take great enjoyment in evolving these across various styles, continuing to strive for perfection,- always with the desire to experiment and produce work that creates diverse opportunities for the next, new painting.
I exhibit locally and throughout the Three Counties, plus major contemporary art fairs across the south-east of the UK. My work appeals to both the decerning collector of art and one-off commissioned pieces that adorn private homes.
