I have always been a painter. Painting for me is as necessary as eating and breathing, and when I do not paint I feel out of balance. I deeply need to paint and to express the beauty that I experience around me in nature, both on the surface and at depth. My subject matter is more about shape and abstract structure, and how these change in different light at different times of the day and in different seasons, rather than about specific details of the landscape. I am interested in the dialogue of the relationship of the two-dimensional painted surface of the painting with the illusion of space and light, in the interplay between abstraction and representation.

I am a contemporary painter, predominantly in acrylics. I am currently concentrating on figurative work, exploring the body’s ability to create, express and produce emotion, and to both release and imprison. However, what I love about art is that each person’s response to an artwork is uniquely their own. The most important thing is that I find painting a joy and enormous fun, and hope that some of that gets sprinkled into my work and passed on to those who view it.

Working with water-based paint, paper and fabric, my primary driver is the creation of textures, inspired by the wearing of aged surfaces. Pattern plays and important part in the composition of my mostly abstract work, with inspiration coming from worn wallpapers, to South Sea Island artifacts, and my background in textile design. The shapes I use help to draw the viewer into the picture. The circle is an enduring theme, with many meanings that can be attached to it, and open to interpretation by the viewer.

I am a full time professional artist, born and raised in Coventry now living in Hampshire. From early childhood I have always painted what I love and have a strong emotional bond with. Expressing these thoughts and emotions through art has always been an intrinsic and valuable part of my life. Trees have been my main muse for the last 10 years. Seeing them as beautiful and strong personalities, I use strong colour to try to capture their beauty and grandeur. I aim to make you stand back, look at them in a new light, and connect with them emotionally. My need to create comes from a desire to play, which along with having always been a daydreamer results in my work being colourful and naive in nature.

‘I believe in creating art that adds beauty back into the Contemporary Art discussion. I make paintings that are concerned with inspiring emotional responses in the viewers, allowing them to be transported into a new world of paint and colour. Up until 2014, I created art using pre-made acrylic and emulsion paints but in 2015 I started a new exclusive series of artworks called ‘The Collection’ using hand mixed paints, diamond dust and lacquer finishes that reference unique paintings that have influenced the history of art . This is a great step towards the unification of my educational qualifications and my artistic countenance and I am looking forward to unveiling this new line of artwork in the coming year.’

My work evolves from drawing expeditions outon the river, the beach or the landscape; in all seasons and weather conditions. I love how changing light, seasons and weather can completely alter the sense of a place and it is these shifts in mood that I explore through the play of colour and light. The elements and the weather play an enormous part in my work and I try to evoke a sense of these changes. My working processes allow a sense of place to emerge, a suggestion of what it felt like to be there, rather than a specific description of a setting: I never really know what my paintings will look like until they reveal themselves.

I am a Sussex artist mostly working in oil and pastel, taking inspiration from the beautiful countryside around me. Whether it be the intimacy of a box garden or the earthy wildness of the Ashdown Forest, I find myself creating a window onto the scene and exploring the shapes, colours and patterns within.

I am a London based mixed media contemporary artist. Having spent the last ten years painting mostly still life, in oil, being influenced by the Scottish Colourists, I have now branched out somewhat and there is a shift in my work. Experimentation, through print-making, using woodcuts and Gelli plate, making my own collage papers and using acrylic paint, has taken me on a different path. I have moved towards painting abstractly, working with more emotive expression and exploration of self. My love of colour, pattern and texture lends itself to this new and exciting world. My aim is to paint bigger, bolder, soulful and more expressive pieces.
