Biography

My passion is in creating and the need to express myself through abstraction or more representational. Sometimes the act of painting and drawing can be magical and even mystical, creating something that doesn't exist in the physical world, is very exciting. Each painting is unique and expresses its own dialogue, my portfolio is diverse and dynamic, always pushing limitations. Inspiration comes in lots of ways; nature, urban decay, industrial landscapes, dreams and sometime words and their meaning. A common theme that runs through all my work is texture and colour. I spend a lot of time with commissions creating design specific work for clients and interior designers. I mostly listen to Bowie when working. Follow me on Instagram for works in progress
