A Visual Journey
I worked as a draughtsman for several years before deciding to return to Art college where I gained a BA Hons Degree in Fine Art Painting in 1996 and have been painting since. I paint from my studio which is a converted lorry container surrounded by open countryside. I spend a great deal of time outdoors being inspired by open skies during the long walks with my two dogs. My paintings are very expressive abstracts being extremely physical in their execution, my larger canvases have a powerful presence these large paintings are capable of making a statement to any room. My technique of painting is characterised by immediacy of a painting process working with the urgency of decision making along with composition, spraying scraping at the surface with a variety of tools. Despite the appearance of forces meeting I constantly assess and push the boundaries of the medium exploring the pigments and their reactions to one another. My work is on stretched canvas, paper, and board. I have my work in collections in Hong Kong, Australia, Canada, United States, United Arab Emirates, Luxembourg, Italy, Ireland and the UK.
