Going for gold!
Acrylic on canvas, 2012
(Click on image for large version)
I have a passion for painting and creating art. My aim is
to make you stop, look, smile and think.
My main focus is portraiture and figurative art. I
love to capture a look, a mood or a moment in
time. It is also a desire of mine to include
some history relevant to the subject within a
portrait painting. However, I enjoy the
challenge of every genre that is put before me and
consider myself to be a versatile artist with the
ability to rise to my own high expectations.
I consider my style to be contemporary and
representational, with colour and design playing
an important role in my work. As I have always had
a passion for interiors and pattern, these details
will often come together in appealing forms within
Acrylic paint is my preferred medium as I find it
extremely versatile and easy to use. I also enjoy
experimenting with oils, pastels, watercolour,
pencil and collage.
