Welcome to my site......
I am an artist based in North London with a passion for painting. I undertake commissions as well as create and sell my own artwork.
My work usually has an element of observation and compositional values, inspired mainly from my travels and my love of the natural environment. I like to experiment by creating layers and shapes, distorting and emphasizing certain details of a chosen subject.
Acrylic on canvas is my usual choice of medium because it is quick drying, allowing me to build up layers creating a history to the surface of the canvas

I have always enjoyed working large scale but more recently have experimented by working on a variety of different sizes. Ideally I like to work on a number of paintings at the same time which enables me to step back and reflect on each piece as it develops.
I'm originally from Manchester and studied Visual Arts at Salford University. Having enjoyed working in a number of creative environments both as an art teacher and in retail/leisure interior design and 3D modeling I decided in July 2010 to work full time as an artist.

'The Dance'- It was beautiful, the photograph didn't do it justice; I hadn't anticipated the lovely texture. It was delivered much more quickly than I expected; I was very pleased as I was so keen to see it! It was extremely well packed hence arrived in perfect condition. (J.D, Nottinghamshire)
