My landscape inspired expressionist paintings are composed of many layers.
I create complex effects in mixed media using a variety of materials to intrigue you and at the same time to bring you into the mood I am conveying.
I hope that my abstract designs offer multiple interpretations to the viewer. The colours I choose and especially my glossy sweeping lines are intended to illustrate thought provoking drama with dancing play on light.
Thrilled to share my innermost thoughts with you in my paintings!
I try to capture subtle effects of natural light in the atmosphere to create an expression of mood.
My new paintings may render an abstract narrative inviting the viewer to join in.
You be the judge of whether I succeed. Your comments are invited.
As new mark making products catch my interest, works change.
Showing and selling my mixed media paintings for seven years since 2016, I combine acrylics, with watercolour, oils, pastels and use a variety of mediums and inks to express the dramatic setting I present.
Sometimes the finished work is topped with a layer or two of cold wax to render a touch of mystery in the depth shown. Often I finish with high gloss varnish to bring out the depth created in the many translucent layers.
I paint on canvas, wood panel or yupo paper making 1/1 varied edition collagraphs from monoprints on watercolour paper.
