My style could be said to be eclectic, each painting for me is an adventure, I explore various methods of execution until I arrive at a solution that l feel will reflect how I conceive the subject.
I sometimes enjoy capturing real life as it is, but increasingly now I choose to paint a slightly more stylistic vivid version, with great attention paid to colour combinations and contrasting areas of tone. The subjects of my paintings are often outdoor natural settings (Ivano and I are keen walkers) involving strong shadows, reflections and colours that create interesting patterns. I am fascinated by the way a change of perspective reveals a different shape and the colours that exist within colours.
I do not however always use the observed world as a starting point. Some of my work is purely mental imagery. These paintings result from a variety of influences, I love the work of the artist Uccelo and of many native artists such as Henri Rousseau. I am captivated by the rich jewel like colours, the clean unfussy lines and the balance of strong colours.
As a modern Welsh artist and obsessive painter, I derive enormous pleasure through being creative, and I hope this is reflected in my work and more importantly transferred to those who see it.
