The Collections


Throughout the year I create a series of paintings based on a themed subject matter and style.

With each collection there is a unique thread that marries the concept. They appeal is across a wider audience,  engaging within the depth and breath of topics married with my various technics. They centre on a series of various challenging subjects, to create differences without repetition within a theme.

With the main body of my paintings concentrating on figurative and portrait work, I'm able to connect on a more emotional platform, whilst finding a balance between consistency and creative explorations.

My landscape paintings are classically based studies, inspired by my journeys  to capture naturers dramatic seasons  of a place and time. Some are applied with either gold or silver additions for a more contempory twist.


'Beauty in Ancient Worlds'

 

This body of work explores the diversity of the ancient world of the Romans and the marble bust. For me the classics will always remain an influential reference point, - a romantic vision for perfection, creating an idealised interruption for both human and animal form.

Drawing inspiration on a rich heritage each works are detailed observational paintings, conveying a period in time that has eroded with a slightly damaged, historical reference.

The additional application of a fragmented gold leaf background symbolises the era of imperial richness, that once honoured ones’ status in society but now with time has prehaps became damaged and aged.

'The Silver Line'

 

 

The silver line is a series of both land and seascapes. It represents a distinct horizon  creating the intersection between the earth and sky as seen by the observer. This sleek, yet sophisticated silver line adds solidity, purity and richness of contemporary playfulness within a classical painting reference.

''The Living Canvas'


Tattoos have their share of misunderstanding. Over various periods of history they have even been banned and in many cultures have been deemed too socially unacceptable, then in others have conveyed statu, wealth and have marked their statement in history.


This collection explores the various ways in which we silently communicate our human emotions with symbolic representations that we don’t always want to put into words. Based on the indiviual they are truly an individual piece of art.


A living canvas of story telling which can show a sign of strength, mark or hide a permanent emotional or physical scar or be uplifting to celebrate ones’ love in life and happiness gained.

 'The Silver Line Contrasts

Box Canvas'


In addition to the series above I have created a smaller box canvas series that play with the contrasts of colour that nature displays through dramatic skies, cloud formations all set with vibrant, contrasting land and seas landscapes
