Hello and thank you for visiting my profile page.
I have often pondered why I create art when there are easier and more tranquil paths through life. And I have come to the conclusion that a work of art, whether a painting, drawing, sculpture or performance can evoke feelings that are beyond the material representation. Creating art gives me the opportunity to embed subtle differences in expression or meaning in everyday subjects. I want my pictures to reach people, leaving them with a sense of warmth and recognition that is personal to them. Art can be a physical delight and a journey of self-discovery, for both artist and viewer.
In my studio and gallery space visitors will find work that forms part of larger ideas/more complex projects as well as ‘one- offs’ that are simply pictures.
• There is a consistency to my subject matter and colour palette, which can lead to repeated themes within my work.
• I usually have one major project in progress and do smaller works around this.
• I like to develop a relationship with my work in progress so that my thoughts and emotions become part of the art.
• Sometimes my works are visual reminders of places or periods in time but they are rarely realistic representations and I frequently abstract to blur the lines between what is there and what we think is there.
