I work as an Interior Designer and Hand Paint Furniture. My interest also lies in producing pieces of modern, contemporary art. I think that colour is a powerful tool to be reckoned with and by using a combination of techniques, can create illusions of another time!
My favourite mediums are acrylics, oils and creating textures in different forms. In some of my artwork, I have used stainless steel, electric wiring, string and plaster paris. My work is mainly painted on Gallery Wrapped Stretched Boxed Canvas - which means they do not need framing and they look brilliant on a plain wall. However, if you would like a piece of artwork framed then please advise me at the time of ordering.
Each of my paintings are unique and original. I will accept commissions if you are wanting that 'Something Different' for your office, home, restaurant or bar.
I was born in Boston, Lincolnshire and moved to Nottinghamshire in England when I was 17 years old and lived there until I moved to Alicante, Spain in 2003 where I took up art more seriously. Like many artists who live and work in Spain, the sea and landscape with its unique light is inspirational. Although after saying that, I also live part of my time in Dublin.
My art began by accident, as I also work as an Interior Designer and create Decorative Painting Techniques for walls, doors and Hand Painted Furniture using my own unique French Antique Style also Faux Marbling and Colour-Washing. When one of my customers asked me if I could do her a piece of artwork to finish off her newly decorated lounge, I thought I would have a go. Needless to say she consequently purchased the artwork I produced for her and asked me to do her some more!
I paint mainly using acrylics, but have done the odd one in oils. My work is mainly done to enhance interiors and if you have a spare blank wall above a sofa etc. or you would like to brighten the office or restaurant – and you require an affordable piece of art, then I like to think that one of my pieces would fit that criteria. I try to create works that reflect the life, colours, forms, mood and light seen in the sky and sea, as well as semi-abstracts.
