April 2018 Update April will see the emergence of a new varied series of works from me which will now all be ready to hang and move into a more colourful collection. The ones i’m working on will all be 60x60cm but i’m desperate more onto larger scale works which I hope to start this month. The level of satisfaction I get from the large canvas’s is immense but I need to develop an image on a smaller scale first and then move upto a larger scale. There is also the problems of the sheer physicality of moving the larger works around and i’m having to invest in a larger scale car to enable me to transport them. About me I am a self-representing emerging contemporary painter based in the northwest of the Uk. My most recent paintings focus on portraiture. I work in a very loose and fluid way building my imagery up carefully with lots of layers. In some cases with skin, as many as 20 layers of varying colours are applied until it feels right. When I paint a portrait, I like to imagine that my subjects have turned up to my studio alive or as ghosts where they’re is a magic photo booth that will transform my wierd cocktail of characters into paintings. Most of my works to date were carried on paper as I work out of small studio so space is a premium. I recently completed a large canvas titled ‘Chillax’ and really loved the results so I may work more with 35mm deep canvas in the future. I’m a self taught painter who started late in life and have been painting for about 10 years now trying out various techniques and subjects which every painter needs to do on the long and windy road to settling into their signature style. All my works carry an individual number. I tend to work on several paintings at once with one released weekly and work in blocks. I only sell originals that are supplied with an artists certificate.
