The Collections


Throughout the year I create a series of paintings on themed subjects and styles.

I marry together my approach to painting and various applications of technics, appealing to a broad audience, with varying topics and styles. 


My detailed figurative and portrait works connect on a more emotional platform with narrative connections, while my landscape paintings are classically based studies, all inspired by my own travels. They capture natures dramatic seasons incorporating both textures and applied gold or silver leaf for a contemporary 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heritage each painting is a detailed observational, conveying a period in time that is eroded with a slightly damaged, historical reference.

The additional application of a fragmented gold leaf background symbolises the era of imperial richness which once honoured ones’ status in society but now, with time has become 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 because in many cultures have been deemed too socially unacceptable. In others have conveyed great status and wealth marking their statements in history.


This collection explores the various ways in which we silently communicate our human emotions. Symbolic representations that we can't always want to put into words, but visually speak volumes, a permanent story of a truly individual piece of art.


The living canvas of storytelling can convey a sign of strength, mark or hide a permanent emotional or physical scars, or be an uplifting tribute 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. These play with the contrasts of colour that nature displays through dramatic skies, cloud formations and vibrant textured landscapes. Contrasting land and sea.
