  • Biography

    I am a figurative painter working in oils and using gold and other leafs to illuminate my work. I am influenced by the icons of the Christian church, the 15th century masters such as Fra Angelico and Filippo Lippi,  the golden decadence of Gustav Klimt, and the colours and passions of Latin America,  Africa, and the Caribbean where I first started to paint.

     I am passionate about depth and intensity of colour, and also texture.  I nearly always work on board or wood as this to me harks back to the beginnings of modern art in the middle ages and represents permanence.  I often use paper, gels and fabric and whatever else comes to hand to create an interesting substructure, and glazes or resin to finish the work.

    Some work simply reflects a vivid memory of a moment in time - a glance, an incident, a moment shared.  But I also look behind the human mask at the many layers that lie beneath, and at the nature of duality:  life and death,  light and  dark,  male and  female, ego and  alter ego and at dreams and  the parallel spirit worlds around which some cultures turn....
