Dacorum Creatives (Herts Visual Arts Dacorum) Arts Hub, permanent exhibitions (February to August 2022).
I am a creative and conservation artist, who absolutely enjoys producing colourful and pleasing artworks, for conservation, wellbeing, your home and workplace.
My aim is to brighten up and help improve the well-being of people, and inspire them to incorporate art and nature into their lives. Creativity is part of me, which goes hand in hand with a deep respect of and interest in, our natural environment. Every painting is original, different from each other, and designed to suit homes and workplaces.
We are gifted by imagination, and I make great use of this before starting on new projects. I often experiment with colours, shapes and their locations to show imagined motions. And use different tools and materials to create textures, thus giving a tactile touch to the painting surface. Some of my paintings have a tactile surface, which can be explored by persons with limited senses. Encaustic wax is often added to enhance the theme and define my art. Ideas about shape, motion and flow in my abstract paintings, have come from my previous experience in production engineering, business administration and information technology.
On the conservation side, my ongoing Conservation series of paintings, asks the viewer to be aware, think, and consider the impact of our actions on this world's environment. My current work supports the U.K. people's conservation and protection of nature on land and in water.
I also attend yearly sculpture workshops, in which new pieces of stone are selected. On these occasions, a unique design in the stone is developed.
