Striking abstract paintings exploring movement and texture.  Art that gets people talking.

Over the past 20 years I have explored many different styles of painting but always tend to come back to a style full of patterns, lines, and blocks of colour. 

Perhaps because I didn’t go to traditional art school but actually started with a degree in Film, this is why my pieces have a certain flow to them.

I’m fascinated by patterns I see in nature such as feathers on a peacock or the underside of a portobello mushroom. I am also drawn to man-made patterns such as tire treads, city maps, or metal fencing.

I like to explore shapes using a concise colour palette, and let the image grow as I continue to work.  Recently I've developed my own painting technique which you can see in my newer pieces.

My intention is to create paintings that make you stop and consider a piece for a period of time, and want to talk about it with the person standing next to you.  I want my portfolio to be full of art that gets people talking.  Come and have a look as I’d love to know what you have to say!
