Creativity is the process of conception to reality – like viewing
the horizon and then walking into it. A beckoning whisper of something long hidden begins to reveal itself –
the anticipation of being let go into something deeper, beyond everyday
The subject matter of my paintings depict something of
this – they are a reflection of my personal emotive story, a visible diary of something nebulous that words alone fail to convey. They
often feature a window, door or mirror – a portal perhaps to something
beyond. I aim to capture
the meeting of time with the timeless; the passing moment framed by what
has happened and what is about to occur. Favouring a muted palette the
subject and colours suggest an essence of time past, fading memories captured on canvas.
I'm largely self-taught but it is a process which will never be complete! I started with acrylics but made the transition to oils in 2016. They suit my work so much better in terms of the subject and style.
My work sells internationally and features in private collections in USA, Australia, Spain, France, Ireland and the UK.
