My work is vibrant, bright and representational working in acrylic and inspired by landscapes and flowers. I see everything around in colour and my paintings have echoes of Expressionism and Fauvism. Growing up in an artistic environment, I spent many years drawing and painting, but it was several years later, in 1996, that I finished an art and music degree where I specialised in stone sculpture. However, after a few years’ gap my current focus is painting.
Amongst this amazing vibrant collection of the natural world is a range of little gems. These are original double-mounted and framed original miniature and A4 framed original paintings of flowers and trees. Not to be missed so do contact me to see what is on offer. I will love showing you my art and telling you the stories behind my paintings.
My biggest painting is Along the Path and is 120cm x 100cm so big and bold and full of vibrant colour. This painting will take you on a journey and you will see something in it each time you look.
During lockdown I ran free online ‘Paint with Gaye’ sessions, tried to boost morale locally by showing ‘happy, vibrant’ paintings daily online from March to June, continued with commissions and currently running an art appreciation course.
My studio is former aviary in the beautiful grounds of West Clayton WD3 5EX. I'm surrounded by light and when I fling open the doors the light is wonderful and you are engulfed in the magic of the place. I can take you on a journey around the estate by showing you the landscape paintings I've created. So feel free to ring for an appointment or send me an email.
If you have a space on a wall, door or any other permanent surface I can paint a mural for you. However, if you have a specific idea for a commission then I can paint that for you. Do contact me to discuss your needs.
You can also see my sketchbooks and how I get my ideas so the shape of things - how I put it all together.
Thank you for stopping by and hope to see you soon.
