My aim is to convey to the viewer the mood, atmosphere, and emotions I felt when first encountering an image. I hope to achieve this by the use of colour, shape and texture.
On my travels I have developed a wide interest in many things, particularly doors. I am drawn to the texture of old buildings and the colours of peeling paint on old doors. I hope my art stimulates the imagination of the viewer and encourages people to wonder what lurks behind the doors. Do they lead somewhere or no-where? I work mostly in oil on board using a palette knife and brush and anything I thinks will give the required effect.
I also love nature and all things natural,seascapes and wild places. I enjoy experimenting with different mediums and am sometimes surprised with the outcome.
One of my paintings was selected for the RA Summer exhibition 2019 and also had one shortlisted at the Mall gallery.
I have exhibited locally in St Barbe Museum in Lymington, The Regent Centre, Christchurch, The Red House Museum,Christchurch, Forest Arts,New Milton, Lymington Arts Festival and the New Forest Show. In 2019 I shared an exhibition with a fellow artist at Forest Arts New Milton.
I belong to Milford Art Group and have exhibited in their exhibition. I also belong to the The Local Art Scene based in Lymington and participate in the pop up art events locally and in Hampshire open studio.
