You could say Art runs in my family ! my Grandmother was a prolific artist who exhibited at the royal academy, I have childhood memoriesâ€™ of her house in Yarmouth with the smell of turpentine and linseed oil, my motherâ€™s sister Was known for her pastel work, and had many commissions from Racing horse owners, as for myself I consider myself to be at the beginning of my art journey, I drew and painted from an early age and was accepted at University to study Art. Having taken a gap year my life took a different direction so Art was put on hold. Many years later I made a career as a photographer doing weddings and lifestyle, while doing this I embraced digital photography and started to do creative work which I exhibited and sold some of my work. In 2017 I decided to take up painting again and the rest is history !!.
I like to use a limited colour palette , and use light and form in a simplistic way, when I start a piece I imagine it first, and then go to work, invariably the canvas takes me in a different direction. The seaside series which at the moment is six pieces evokes the simplicity of childhood and â€œ doing stuff â€œ at the seaside, I will continue to do more of these in the next year. Also as I regard myself as being a student I will continue to study, refine my technique and develop as an artist.
Here is my work I hope you enjoy it
