I produce mixed media pieces based around punk and new wave music and iconic images from the golden age of cinema. My techniques include a combination gel transfer, collage, acrylic, inks, and spray paint. I build layers of colour and texture and use cuttings from vintage music press papers and film magazines.
The great outdoors is my studio, I am one of those mad all year round plein air Watercolour Artists.
As for my work, I aim to capture the atmosphere, light and essence of what I see around me. The subjects I paint are vast, I cannot predict what I will see that inspires in any particular moment. It might be hazy light, a storm or a feeling of deja vu. I just know I love it!
I would describe my paintings as intuitive, playful and energetic. Rich with colour and emotion, expressively painted and visually engaging. I work in a media range of acrylic paint, ink, collage and resins.
