I will paint or draw almost anything and love the feeling of moving paint around. I'm drawn in the main, but not exclusively, to still-lifes and interiors. I try to capture a glimpse into someone's life or, at the very least, get the viewer to look at every day objects in a slightly different way.
Oil is my preferred medium, but usually there is a nod to mixed-media, with hints of the under-painting or my original drawing remaining and lately I have been working on collaged surfaces with acrylic underpaintings. All of which, I hope, will lead somewhere unexpected - both for me and the viewer.
Art was always a feature in my life, I enjoyed it at school, although was encouraged down a more academic path, I then took a couple of adult classes when I was in London in the 80's and 90's, taking it slightly more seriously with regular classes in drawing when I lived, briefly, in New York at the end of the 90's. I gained an HND at Ayr College in Art and Design in 2008 and I have kept on painting at various day and evening classes and in my studio at home since then.
Most of my work is available for sale, although some pieces shown here have already been sold. And most are available as giclee prints.
Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in making a purchase or would simply like to ask me a question. Originals are all framed and vary in price from around £100 to £700, with most being in the middle of that range. And the mounted prints are priced at either £30 or £70 depending on the size you choose.
