About my work:
Oil painting on canvas.
I thought you might like to know how the Egg collection came about, when I was a kid at school we would have to take our lunch box as there were no kitchen or cooking facilities when the dinner bell rang we would all sit on the floor to eat our lunch.
Almost every day I had a fried egg on rice, the other kids would say, ‘Ta fried egg again, you will begin to start looking like a fried egg’.
I used to plead with my sister to have something different but we had many chickens and many eggs so it was always fried egg on rice, it was easy for her……
One day I was frying an egg and thought that would make a great face………
With influences from Lowry to Botticelli I love painting people, but I do not want to paint portraits, I want my people to have a bit of character, a little of the night about them, coming from my dreams my imagination.
I am an accomplished fine portrait artist, but my real passion is in colour and how the arrangement of colour can produce a different emotional experience of art. I want original and striking paintings which draw the viewer in, which makes them stop…to then see more than the initial work form and colour.
I have always been fascinated by artists who pushed the boundaries, who experimented who changed the art world, my art explores many styles, from Modernism through Impressionism, Expressionism and Cubism.
I want my painting to make a statement, to be timeless, exquisite, of indeterminate origin, the tone beautifully considered with an atmosphere of wonder and intrigue, giving an emotional as well as a visual connection, to look stunning hanging on a wall providing enjoyment for many years to come.
COMMISSIONS: I would be delighted to create you a unique work, whatever size you need or colour palette.
