About Me

Self Portrait with Pen

Influenced by Pop art and the impressionists, my art is about colour, form and movement.
I work with both traditional and digital media and like to use everything in my work; acrylic, watercolour paint, pastels, decorative papers and even newspaper.

Detail is intrinsic to all my pieces and I like to create work that keeps the eye busy,
evoking a sense of curiosity in the viewer.

For me, art is fun and life affirming; celebrating both the subject and the medium its created in.

You can see examples of my work by browsing through the pages of this site.
I hope you enjoy them!
