About The Artist

I am fascinated with colour and light, and my paintings reflect this with an emphasis on exploring the effects of strong light and unusual colours on my subjects. I have been painting all my life, gradually developing my painting techniques into the distinctive blend of style and colour I use today.

I am particularly interested in working with the nude figure, capturing and emphasising the curves of the figure through light and colour. My paintings of nudes often have an element of mystery to them, and include silhouettes with the curves edged in light. My paintings are of nudes but are about seeing the beauty of the nude form through the play of light and colour on the figure.┬áSeveral of my nude paintings were exhibited at the Gascoigne Gallery in Harrogate in their ‘Starkers’ exhibition.

I sometimes use digital techniques, creating images with 3D modelling and digital painting software, using these to extend my exploration of the effects of light.

Lately I have been exploring other media and have been enjoying creating fine jewellery from gold filled and sterling silver wire using various techniques including wire wrapping and weaving. Some examples can be seen on the jewellery pages. If you would like to purchase any of my jewellery an Etsy shop will be coming very soon.

I hope you enjoy this site, it contains recent work and also some of my older works that have been sold. Paintings are added as I complete new work, so please check back soon.
