I am an professional artist, born in London. I moved to Bedfordshire during my childhood and it was at this time I realised a passion for drawing and painting.
I am self-taught and driven by my admiration of nature and its elegance. Working predominantly in oil paint, charcoal and pencil. I uses precise and deliberate strokes to produce representational pieces of work. My pencil and charcoal studies concentrate on movement and texture, whilst my oil paintings are showing detail, depth and the characteristics of the subject. I love to use wooden panels and aluminium to create my artwork, painting several layers of detail.
My recent work concentrates on the natural world and showing how precious it is. I often use golds and rich colours in my paintings depicting beauty. I believe that gold is often associated with compassion and love, which is what I hope the viewer can see in my work. The gold also represents a material glamour and grandeur, I try to show that people can live without objects but we can not live without nature.
I really feel that putting both on one painting highlights just how magnificent wildlife is and push's the animal to the forefront.
