Based in United Kingdom
I am an abstract painter inspired by nature and music, particularly the coast and horizons at sea. My latest paintings are abstract sunsets and seascapes using colour to express light reflecting onto water. I always listen to music when painting and feel that this has a strong influence on the finished work. I’ve chosen song lyrics from Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Crosby Stills & Nash, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, Pink Floyd and David Bowie amongst others to title my paintings. I feel that a snippet of a song lyric as a title gives the painting extra depth. Lyrics often jump out at me when I'm painting and seem to fit the artwork perfectly! Many of my paintings are inspired by light on water I have always loved the sea and my childhood holidays were spent in a caravan in Wales, where we spent a lot of time on beautiful windswept beaches looking at the ocean and sheltering from the British Summer. I went to college in Brighton to do my BA in Fine Art, where my love of the sea grew and I now try and spend as much free time as I can contemplating the coast, despite living in London! The Welsh coastline is still very special to me, as is Cornwall, which is now one of my favourite places in the whole world to visit and watch the light change on the sea. Many of my paintings are inspired by Prussia Cove in the wild West of Cornwall, a place I return to year after year. When I despatch a painting I always send a personalised card and a complimentary set of 3 hand made greetings cards as a thank you. Shipping is very quick and the painting should arrive within 48 hours of despatch. If you live within the M25, personal same day delivery is possible. I can also personally deliver the painting at a pre arranged time that suits, if you live within 50 miles of London. If you are thinking of purchasing a painting for a gift and you'd like me to write a personalised gift card to go with it, please let me know who it's to and what occasion it is, and anything particular you'd like me to say and I'll be happy to include it with the painting.
