My work is driven by a fascination with the changing world, contemporary culture and the history of art. These are often mixed together in what I want to be a spontaneous blend of images rich in cultural references, I hope held together by passages of pure painting and lyrical colour in a "new representationalism"
drawings and prints usually based on thematic series. Also featured in cards and minibooks - minibooks are digitally produced 12 sided concertina books, compilations of drawings or prints, 15cm square sold with an envelope.

I love adventure! The greatest thing about art, is that it's everywhere! It is pure, free, authentic and wild. You can take a moment and turn it into a masterpiece! Whether it be music, dance or language, there's a craft to this madness! Experience art and the many forms of it through my work.
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.
My work is of mixed media, some in Oils on Canvas, watercolour, pencil/Colour pencil, charcoal sketches and conte crayon.
Some of the work is inspired by my travels, whilst some are representations from images I have sourced which inspire me. I am at the moment focusing on portraits, and won a special recognition award in this category for my portrait of Gerard Butler.
