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.
Heraldic Artist and Calligrapher. I paint heraldic arms, only those registered with an appropriate authority, and have designed ranges of handpainted illuminated initial letters, heraldic animal cards, original and printed calligraphy works with and printed heraldic animal cards and diamond cards.
I am happy to take orders and commissions from individuals and for wholesale orders.
