My art... I paint in an expressive, semi-abstract style. Working with a mostly limited or monochrome palette, I love the calming combination of blue and white, with occasional flashes of red, which I sometimes feature as an expression or representation of my brush with mortality.
Technique and style I like to experiment with textures and a variety of materials, such as acrylic paint, ink, resin and clay, to create subtle, fluid effects. My aim is to convey and capture light, atmosphere and movement in a loose, flowing, suggestive style.
Theme I'm especially interested how the natural environment fluctuates and can be viewed as both powerful and fragile at the same time. The sea, in particular, is a recurring theme, and features prominently in my work. The beautiful north Norfolk coast has been a great inspiration, as well as a positive force in my recovery.
Exhibitions My paintings and miniature sculptures have featured and sold at exhibitions in London, New York, Norfolk and Stratford-upon-Avon. Several of my paintings have been selected by an art gallery in Los Angeles for juried online art exhibitions. My work can also be found in private collections around the world.
Supporting I donate a percentage from the sale of each artwork to the Brain and Spine Foundation, and am always interested to hear from, and support, charity exhibitions that need donations of small paintings.
