My work is eclectic in both style and subject and can loosely be divided into two categories

Loose, playful, outdoor or study work
Considered and academic studio work

Artist's Statement

“I work in Acrylics and Oils. Between them I have the opportunity to paint in the manner I wish at any time. My work is eclectic in both style and subject and can loosely be divided into two categories, (i) loose, playful, outdoor or study work and (ii) considered and academic studio work. As a person I am different each time I commence a new painting or body of work so I try to allow this personality to show through. This makes the process more interesting for me. However, certain elements can be found common to all of my work. I  am hugely influenced by the positive effects of light and its ability to create momentary emotional highs and its extraordinary impact on colour. The subject and style facilitate my emotional response to colour.”
