Biography

I will always strive to make art that roots the viewer to the spot in shock and beauty.
I want to create a spell in a jewel, an object with hidden meaning, symbols and mystery.
I want the object I create to be a riddle that may or may not be figured out.
I want to make marks using many different materials on good quality plywood, then I want use sandpaper to edit the chaos to reveal subtle tones and textures.
I want to create till my time runs out.

inspiration

I am inspired by Norman Rockwell, klimt, Vladimir Tretchikoff, Faberge, Alberto Giacometti
I love the grain of wood and what happens to it when good quality paint is swept on to it and sanded off.
I'm inspired by, comic books, Sigils, the occult and symbolism.
I'm at my most happy when in a trance using all i've spoken of above to create a spell which i see as the finished painting and even happier doing all this with other artists by my side.

medium

I work on plywood with pencil, charcoal, acrylic and oil paints
I build up up many layers and then sand away. this creates the required depth for me backgrounds.

The foregrounds are created using pencils and charcoals, then finished with coloured lacquers
