My interest in painting began early in life under the tuition of my late father, continuing to develop naturally over time. I have been fortunate to have had many years of world travel experiences and always held a great appreciation for nature, having lived near the Peak District and the Lake District for periods of my life. I am also a keen interiors enthusiast with a particular liking for the modern rustic and contemporary urban styles. These represent important aspects that prominently influence my abstract art today.
As a practical person, creating a piece of art inspires me to focus my effort to present artwork that will be enjoyed and appreciated by others as well as the sense of personal fulfilment I gain from the experience. My own creative process is to freely explore texture, colour and form without a definitive vision for the end result. This element of freedom is the hardest discipline to maintain, yet is a crucial part of the process. The early seeds of an idea will include the colours and a loose style for the painting. The creative development then ebbs and flows until there is a natural sense that the work is complete. I take time
during periods of the work to reflect on the possibilities for what comes next and what the final outcome may be. Some of my paintings are purely explorational and others are driven by personal feelings about life and the world around me. There is always a great concentration to remain dedicated to producing my own original abstract work.
I like to work closely with private or commercial clients to provide commission based abstract paintings or pieces from my portfolio that can be purchased directly from me.
There is something bold and personal to owning an original piece of art. Texture, colour and placement add to the interest of a space, whether at home, office or any other establishment. It is always a pleasure to be asked to produce a personal piece of art for a client.
