Here is my latest painting that will be the last painting to make my solo exhibition in a couple ofContinue reading “A Way to Equilibrium II”

Here is an in depth interview about my art that I did recently with Ruan Shields recently.
I started this painting at the beginning of July 2020 with a few scribbles on this canvas and then went blank on it for weeks. Then one night in August I went all colour expressive with it, it ended up here. A closer look at this painting I finished last August 2020. I made aContinue reading “The Humidity of and August Starty Night”
My first painting for 2021 I am thrilled to be awarded for the winning painting at Enlighten call at Hambly & Hambly, a great start to the new year. I was drawn to the beautiful bright colours of the work of Adrienne Finnerty’s sculptural relief piece titled ‘Show the world you light, your bright, theContinue reading “Alpha Centauri”
Pieces of ‘Neowise’ coming together. Early stages ✨🙂 Here are some pieces of my current painting in progress. I was inspired to make a large scale painting back in the summer this year around comet NEOWISE which was soaring our skies at the time. I left it to breathe for the past few months asContinue reading “Working Title – Neowise”
Every so often I revisit a painting that resonates unresolved in the back of my mind. Here is ‘Lush’ forming a conclusion of sorts. Inspired by the warm summer sensations of a mid July and the colours that it brings. Tree stumps amongst an array of beauty and colour, where the foxglove dominates for aContinue reading “Lush : Part 1 and 2”
Here is a small new work, untitled for now. Sometimes I paint these smaller ones while I am working on a larger scale painting. They help stop the over thinking and allow a sense of release when moving between the small and the larger scale
A small part of how this painting came about.
This is one of the fun parts of making the painting. One of the expressive parts for colour, as the values form from lights into darks. It’s almost like the colour is dancing along with the under drawing’s lead.
Re-worked 2020Over the past few months looking back at this painting from 2019, the more I looked at it, the more I felt it needed refining. So I revisited it these past few strange weeks.
Not to explain it all but this is somewhat the squiggles of my trail, both mapped and unmapped.
I am happy to say that a small selection of my paintings are now available as limited edition, museum-quality giclée prints. They are created using the finest archival pigment inks presented on Hahnemühle 310gsm paper and come with a Certificate of Authenticity. Available in a variety of sizes here.
Works in progress and probably a full moon eve moment of madness! These began as gestural quick marks that all came about in one session within 4 hours. It was an expressive beginning to something I wanted to explore using yellow and orange, colours I love using together. The mediums used were both oil paintsContinue reading “Yellow Energy”
I unintentionally painted this entire painting upside down. I came to a point were I didn’t want to go any further with it. It was just ‘done’, in my mind but there was something really bothering me about where it came to. I turned it upside down, and it seemed to work immediately. How funny..
