In my work I create spaces for contemplation, reflection and solace both within urban and countryside settings. I attempt to recreate hypnotic and dramatic qualities of light, and a contemporary sense of place to stir the emotions. Some scenes offer an element of intrigue - setting the stage for the viewer to play out their own story, while others give you a place to escape to. I like to leave the viewer asking questions and for my paintings to draw you in and transport you elsewhere.
The night fascinates me and the emotional drama and intensity of colour it creates are what draws me to it. Light effects and mood in its various forms are recurring themes throughout my work.
Being from an artistic family I have been surrounded by paintings my entire life. Exhibitions are held several times a year, in various locations and include a range of subjects that have inspired and motivated me. My client base is large and diverse. My work hangs in private collections worldwide and is in demand from galleries and collectors. Private viewings and commissions are available for interested parties.
Please get in touch if you require any more information.
I have undertaken a number of commissions, from clients homes/businesses to favourite areas, to places with special meaning. You can contact me directly or through The Butterworth Gallery.
