About The Artwork

Much of my work is abstract, but I also enjoy painting images from nature that appear to me to have an abstract quality, such as rock faces, the surface of water and tree bark. I try to embrace these abstract features and make the most of the colour within the scene. I like to find a balance between painterly techniques and accurate representation when painting from nature. I love the way that water can behave in many different ways. I use various techniques to try to capture how water looks and feels. Each water painting is a new challenge for me; full of experimentation and risk. Wherever I go I take photographs and videos that I may later use as the basis for paintings. I study these at length, and with the water paintings in particular I need to have a clearly thought-out, yet flexible plan of how I will approach the painting from a technical point of view. I often revisit old photographs, and it may take several years before I feel I am ready to start turning these recollections of the original experience into a painting. This painting is from a photo of the surface of a dolphin pool at SeaWorld in Florida. Created in 2006

I never really chose to be an artist - expressing myself visually is just part of who I am. Art is one of the few things you can throw yourself into entirely - putting everything that you are into the process. By embracing this idea, I allow my art to be as diverse as my own human experience. I have many styles, and the simplicity, immediacy and flexibility of acrylics lends itself well to my approach to painting. Repeating themes in my artwork are abstraction, the use of the abstract quality of features of nature such as rocks and water, influences from tribal and primitive art, the use of the subconscious to drive the creative process, and a vibrant use of colour.
