With my arsenal of painting techniques and intuition, I am driven to create a visual experience on canvas that sparks a positive energy within the viewer.

 

Oil paint both caresses and blasts the canvas in a simultaneously tactile and bold display. Adrenaline-fuelled swipes fluidly sweep the surface, whilst delicate daubs of the brush or fingertip leave moments of calculated impression. The balance is offset as I interchange between these approaches in order to achieve the final goal of creating a blended harmony.

Some works will boldly stimulate your mind through a grandiose cocktail of mark-making, others will more subtly trigger emotion, memory, feeling or fantasy. 

Artist living in Kingston Upon-Thames, London, UK.
