Mountain View :Telescopic 460 x 610mm

Welcome to my art world: My website contains different colorful abstract, paintings, canvas and paintings created on wood. my work is an intuitive, visual diary of my interior language. The foundation of my work is in the balancing of shape and line with color, texture, and atmosphere.

I live in London and I am proudly self taught. Creating my art makes me happy so each day I like to create something and share it with others.

Abstract images that feel free and spontaneous, combining texture, dimension, colour, and design are the basis for my work. I have always been fascinated with the textures of various materials, colours, and how they interact. I work with layers of various mediums such as acrylics, oils, watercolors, pastels and textures such as fillers which are fast drying and add to my technique; altering colours, revealing layers below and sometimes generating variations in colour form and hue. My paintings often include textures such as glass and fillers or even hot or cold wax.

I use a variety of implements to achieve the completed work such as those found in the kitchen, garage or garden. I also use traditional artists brushes and tools. Once completed I cover my paintings with a clear UV high gloss protective finish.

All my artworks are original pieces and for sale they can also be purchased here Or you may contact me via email below.

What inspires me:

Colours, the seasons, shapes, and lines in everyday things provides me with the urge and inspiration to paint.

What is my creative process?

It starts with the visualisation of colour, shape and form. I then plan my ideas my head before moving onto the canvas or wood or whatever I will be using that day to paint on. Once I see colour, shape and some form I can start to create.

The three words that best describes my work.

Spontaneous, intuitive, and colourful

The artists that have influenced my work.

Jackson Pollock for his wonderful movement colour and style whilst he would be painting. Hilma af Klint, for being the first abstract painter and Wassily Kandinsky for his use of watercolour in abstract painting which I find fascinating .

The most important tools when creating my work.

My mind I need to be able to see things to go that place in my head where I store my ideas.

The best piece of advice I have been given.

To create and be free let no one tell you that you are not good enough.

Where do I go for inspiration?

Outside into the world to look at colours shapes even in the smallest details it could be a leaf on the ground or a huge building. The world provides so much inspiration it is all around us for me it cannot be any one thing. Once I have my inspiration I tend to use my tool /mind to store the ideas I have collected from the world .

I hope you enjoy them.

If you have any questions or comments I’d love to hear from you.
