While interested in high levels of abstraction in painting I also enjoy painting which relates more directly to the natural world and often paint representational paintings focused on landscape and the figure. As a painter, I am naturally obsessed with paint, but I highly value the skills of drawing and observation which form the necessary training for any artist eye, and therefore I make it my practice, however experimental my playing may be, of continuing to develop the structures which inform any visual expression, regardless of style.
Examples of paintings are located under the subheading tabs.
This website focuses on displaying selected examples of highly expressive lyrical abstract paintings but if you wish to see a wider range of my work, just ask.
I create paintings using a mixture of both artistic intuition and formal considerations and each painting evolves in its own way. Human experience, emotion, and my own personal life journey form the centre of my work. The brokeness of human experience fascinates me, as well as the potential for growth and renewal.
Paintings are sold when no longer required for exhibition purposes, so do contact me to enquire about availability if you see a painting you like.
Rough price guide for original artwork is
£60 - £400 depending on medium and size.
