An apt painting for the days we're headed into - I met Morpheus, a fantastic shire horse, on a January day in the middle of a light snow shower. As Morpheus was led before me in a light snow flutter, I took many reference photos ready to paint him from the warmth of the studio. Morpheus is a stunning horse, who went onto win the Shire Horse Charge at Lingfield, in 2014. This piece is painted in oil on canvas, part of my equestrian series. I am so attuned to the human figure that through these pieces, I sought to go beyond what I knew, challenging my artistic skills and perceptions with a number or horse drawings and paintings.
When I was three years old, I told my parents that I wanted to be a violinist or an artist. The closest I got to the violin was ten years of guitar lessons, but art has been an enduring passion, through school, art college and beyond. Primarily, I love to paint people. I relish the challenge to get an accurate likeness whilst trying to keep my brush marks lively, colourful and interesting. I also love colour. I get a real kick adding vibrant touches to an otherwise subtle scene, whether it’s a portrait, landscape, equestrian piece or whatever. It’s those unexpected hints that can bring a painting alive and bring inexplicable joy to the viewer. Based in West Sussex, UK.
