Not quite of this world and very happy about that.
Hello! I am a professional artist based in Sussex and am known for my large, original semi abstract, contemporary landscape paintings which blend the near-abstract with the traditional. I did an art foundation course at Chelsea in 1979 and completed a fine art degree in Brighton in 1983. I have painted since I was three. It is the thing I am best at and it always makes me happy. I paint 3 or 4 times a week, sometimes for 5 hours at a time. I am very lucky and I know it.
My painting style is a fusion of Expressionist, Impressionist, Semi-abstract, Art Nouveau and something I term ‘memory impressionism’. This is where I go walking somewhere rural, look at and absorb the things I see and experience, and then come home and try to capture an 'echo' of the place from memory including any wildlife I may have seen.
I try to capture the essences of nature and landscapes - especially in ancient places like England.
I use an excellent quality cotton canvas for my oil paintings which is acid free and durable. It is called '3D' canvas or 'deep edge' canvas meaning it is wide at the edges and does not need to be framed as has a neat modern look. I leave the edges white most of the time but can paint them if requested. All art is sold ready to hang and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity which states it details, is signed by me and will assist in any future resale. I don't varnish my paintings I prefer a semi matte look but this can be done if you wish. Oil paint is very enduring and colours will not fade. At the back of the canvas you will see wedges in each corner that can be lightly tapped with a hammer should temperature changes in your house or office make the canvas looser than it should be.
