I work in freestyle water colour, inks and acrylics to bring realistic and imagined effects to my paintings. I have a passion for colour as well as modern interpretations of still life objects. I like to use everyday subjects such as discarded shoes, boots and picked vegetables and turn them into larger than life representations of themselves. These strong images bounce out of their frames and grab attention in any setting. My popular and much imitated, pen and ink drawings are placed together to make one larger picture. These ‘thumb print’ pictures are an original interpretation of current life. Recent Exhibitions and Awards: Short listed for Surrey artist of the year 2021. New Ashgate gallery 2021.
