About

My paintings are mainly Abstract and I have used Charcoal, Acrylic, Gouache, Ink and Oil in my works previously.
I enjoy painting on different textures - wood, canvas, metal and paper.
In my paintings I show shape, form, colour and mark making.
My art is a spontaneous activity with no real preconceived ideas. I like the idea of chance and the journey of each painting till it's conclusion.
My paintings are focussed more on the use of colour and how different colours interact with each other.
How the colour in a painting can make you feel when you look a at it, is an important part of my work.
When you place a painting on a wall and it lifts the surroundings then I feel it has been successful.

Influences

My artist influences are the colour and patterns of Henri Matisse's paintings, Frank S Gehry's architecture, the use of colour in paintings of the Fauves and the collages of Schwitters .
Everywhere I look in my daily life I see wonderful shape and colour.
Kandinsky said that colour can have a musical and spiritual quality and sometimes you can get two colours together and they just sing.
My passion is painting and collage. I enjoy bold colour in my paintings which can bring life to a room and create a visual and focal point.
