In my work I create atmosphere, mood and spaces for contemplation, reflection and solace. Having been raised in the countryside and now living in the city i am drawn to both urban and country settings and I am fascinated by the distinct qualities of light which contribute to a sense of place and stir the emotions. Often I find I am setting the stage for the viewer to play out their own story, or creating a place to escape to and like to leave the viewer asking questions. I love for my paintings to draw you in and transport you elsewhere.
Late night street lights, the last moments at dusk on the coast, forgotten places and liminal spaces have been frequent themes for me and perhaps what i am best known for. More recently I have been exploring the emotions and meaningful associations held within objects.
Being from an artistic family I have been surrounded by art and creativity 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.
The standard timeframe for commissions can be up to 6 months though this is dependent upon the current waiting list.
