I am an instinctive painter who enjoys mixing a chaotic, colourful, and textured process with mixed media, then finishing off with a contrasting overlay of precision detail. I love the way these styles come together and the challenge it makes when creating each unique piece.
My love and passion for all Animals, I like to think comes alive when I pull them together on either paper or canvas, and there is nothing better than seeing them on customers / collectors’ walls.
A lot of my inspiration comes from the way Animals move, their unique personalities and the texture of their fur is something I finds fascinating.
After years of studying and painting Animals, I've feel that if you look into their eyes you can tell what they may be trying to say, it's like looking into their soul, and trying to capture this emotion in my artwork is always a challenge, but one that I love.
My main choice of medium is Mixed Media, I describe this as everything that is available in my tool box, this consists of acrylic paint, inks, watercolours, a mixture of pencils and coloured pencils, tissue paper, handmade lino cuts, star stamps, and spoons the list goes on its endless.
