Painting is just a part of my life. I enjoy the journey of making these canvasses and hope that viewers will join me in exploring them.
Painting has been and still is just a part of my life. I am lucky enough to enjoy the making of these canvasses and even luckier that people are interested in buying them so that then even more people can share them.
The central theme to the works is landscape whether that is countryside, buildings within it, seascapes or the feeling that has been evoked. Detail varies. It could be building shapes and decoration or the colour schemes that places suggest, may be it represents a journey made up of several images or thoughts that emerge as the painting is underway and then into the final piece that I invite you to share. Perhaps they will trigger your own feelings responses and memories.
I work mainly in Acrylics which allows a range of surfaces from a smooth watercolour style to thick impasto that might even include some collage. Images emerge from materials and process - something beyond words that speaks through the senses- so that the painting holds its own history of layers and marks. Colour evokes temperature and feeling and is often intense, demanding space for best viewing.
