Mixed Media Painter
Painting and drawing have always been an important part of my life and I love to explore new techniques and a range of media from charcoal, coloured pencils and pastels to acrylics and oils.
Variety is vital to me, and I move between classical 'smooth' representational paintings and freer, more painterly or abstract expression, sometimes dabbling in paint pouring or moving paint around with a knife or a cut piece of credit card.
I love vivid colour but also like to work occasionally with a subdued, limited palette.
Images with strong lines and forms appeal to me and I search for the story behind a painting and its mood from energy and excitement to tranquillity.
