A BIT ABOUT ME....
Born in Wimbledon in 1974, I currently live in Alton, Hampshire. I studied Illustration at University of Westminster (1993 - 1997) and was a commission-based artist for many years before embarking on my own artistic journey.
With a particular interest in people and places, I like to paint atmospheric scenes that allow narrative interpretation. I also enjoy painting subjects that evoke feelings such as nostalgia and joy.
Working in acrylics, I build up layers of paint to add depth and interest. My process is rapid to begin with and I often leave some of the initial, loose marks visible whilst developing other areas.
A strong composition and sophisticated use of colour are important to me. I have been told that my paintings turn an ordinary scene into something extraordinary and this continues to be my aim - to transport the viewer and allow them to see the world through my eyes.
