Inspired and influenced by travelling in South America in 1998, after a successful career in Design and Art Direction, I returned to London to start up my own design consultancy creating design concepts, logos and mood canvases for private members clubs.
Now, dedicated to my own art practice, you’ll find me in my studio painting and experimenting, creating work that reflects my background in graphics.
I have formed an instinctive design strategy when working on a painting, I trust my feelings as to which composition, mood and harmony works for me.
My paintings are not self conscious, representational landscapes, rather, they become a part of who I am in that moment and the result is a ‘mindscape’. I don’t depict any particular place or have a specific image in mind other than what the painting ultimately becomes. Delicate plays of light and dark and the overall atmosphere of my work are more crucial than the subject.
Working in thick layers of paint, I am able to push the paint around the canvas. I gradually layer glazes of colour to enhance and define my brushwork creating a contemporary painting.
