I work in a variety of mediums, drawing and painting mostly from life around me. The starting point is having a strong emotional response to what I am looking at - the landscape or figures or flowers which move me and evoke the response. You have to care about what you are drawing or painting to give it life. My work is representational, but not traditional in that I also explore colour and form and love looking at other artists work and studying art history. I approach my art making by developing my technical ability through work and experiment. Art is also about finding new ways of using the various mediums as well as improving technically.
So, I find out through experiment and discipline all the time hoping I am developing and hoping too, that people will like my work. After all, even though painting etc is a personal thing which is enjoyable for itself, the response of the viewer is just as important, I think.
These images are examples of my work over the last three years. I undertake commissions, please contact me for more information
