Born in Hereford, educated in Cardiff, I am a self-taught artist who lives in Swansea. I love light and colour. In my art I am drawn to light and shadows and how they shape our emotions. I use oil on linen canvas mainly. I remember visiting the South of France as a teenager and being mesmerized by the dazzling light, I have been attempting to capture that excitement about light in my paintings ever since. I particularly love the natural world, animals and landscapes. I am also drawn to empty places like churchyards, woods and hills. When I paint in oils I usually paint the light first and then layer the shadows and mid-tones. I try and make my colours bold and bright but as realistic as possible. I aim to make people look at the ordinary and see the extraordinary beauty in it.
My artworks cover a wide variety of subject, media and styles. I began with figurative drawings and spray paintings that developed into abstraction and textured interior artworks. More recently I have produced a series of scenic landscapes in greyscale aswell as autumn colour scheme. I like to think of my art in a state of evolution and a learning curve that is constantly progressing.
I have developed my approach to landscape painting over the past twenty years using multiple layers of oil paint, thickener sand glazes. I feel my love of colour and passion for creating work that is as audacious as the elements themselves produces a personal style that I hope echoes the vibrancy of nature.
