I have been painting for more than thirty years and I would describe my work as contemporary realism. I have a modern outlook on creating an image but I am happy to use the painting methods of the old masters alongside modern technology and materials.
I work in a variety of mediums: oil, acrylic, collage and created objects and the subject matter may be figurative, still life or townscape. I am an urban painter inspired often by the images that we all see in our everyday lives.
I like to make my own interpretation of those images. I love the use of colour and the magical combinations of colour.I paint for me and I paint what intrigues me.
I hope that my pictures are always decorative as I see a picture as not only a work in it’s own right, but also part of an overall decorative scheme. I don’t paint to intimidate; I want people to feel comfortable with my pictures.
