Description

I like to paint whatever comes to mind, things that interest me such as the sea, adventure, the undiscovered and make believe. Line, shapes, colour and pattern are important to me. I don’t try and represent a subject through realism or pour my emotion into a painting, instead I try to convey my interest directly, with simple, bold images that speak for themselves. I enjoy the process of painting and therefor spend a great length of time on the details, getting the aesthetics just right. I’m inspired by folk art because it’s detailed and decorative, and European illustration because it’s daring. I like the flat crisp qualities of print, I probably should use print, but I love the sense of escapism painting provides
