My work is mostly representational, in a variety of styles and medium. I?m fascinated by unseen colours that surround us, particularly in the naked body; I try to capture these in life drawings and portraits. My style is constantly evolving from photorealism to something much looser. I take hundreds of photographs to work from, often combining several digital images into one painting, many of which contain people, animals, or birds.
Whilst painting I completely lose myself, this focused approach certainly helped me overcome cancer. Following successful exhibitions at The Pavilion Theatre, Sidmouth, Clevedon Pier, and various Art Trails around the West Country, my work can now be found in private collections in A ustralia , New Zealand , Greece , Germany , U.S. A . and Canada , as well as all over the UK . I have also received various commissions for The Spire Hospital in Bristol .
Selling work and Tutoring budding A rtists enables me to buy more materials to continue what has become the love of my life. I sincerely hope you like what you see, and please feel free to ask any questions or comment on any of the work, email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org constructive criticism is always welcome to help me improve.
