About The Artwork

Underwater painting of a mermaid with red hair flanked by Japanese fighting fish. I intentionally created a sense of vulnerability in my painting, Fighter. The positioning of my subject’s arms across her body give the impression that she feels slightly unsafe and is trying to cover herself. It’s a reminder that not all battles are fought by great warriors – that there is strength in empathy and power in emotional intelligence. Some wars are fought on battlefields with gunfire, some fights are done in rings, but cerebral battles are hidden from view and mental health issues are often seen as a sign of weakness, when in actual fact, mental health can be a daily battle. Mermaids are usually thought of as creatures of great power, and my mermaid painting, Galene’s Kiss, has a kind of overwhelming calm feel. In Fighter, I wanted to create a feeling of inertia, rather than calm. A moment’s pause before battle commences.

I'm a freelance artist, based in Leeds, and mainly work in acrylic, gouache and soft pencil, applied with delicate brushstrokes, bold palette knives, heavy graphite and smudgy fingers. Born within the wild hills of the northern Peak District, I began painting and drawing at a very early age and was a regular entrant to the Derbyshire Open Art Exhibition. When working for leisure, my pieces focus mainly on figurative subjects with dark, brooding and occasionally erotic interpretations. I primarily work on commission, which means I have developed a broad range of styles to suit customers’ needs. From pets to family members, precise buildings to abstract countrysides, delicate fairies to valiant superheroes and much more, I'm eager to take on any challenge and add my own twist. I've never formally studied art. I've been painting and drawing as long as I could hold a pencil or paintbrush and I've just developed myself organically. I had my first paid commission at the age of 16 and haven't stopped creating bespoke pieces since. I have exhibited at Buxton Open Art exhibition, and at various small galleries and pubs around Yorkshire.
