Artist Statement

I am a self-taught professional Artist, born in Yorkshire, in 1961, and now based in Reading, UK where I have my office and studio.
Though I have always had a flair for pencil and chalk drawing, I graduated in engineering in 1983 and with a passion to travel, I initially pursued a career as a design consultant in various managerial roles with international design consulting companies, residing primarily in the Middle East. Nevertheless, an artisan at heart, I returned to Commercial Art in 2003, initially as a semi-professional artist and have extensively developed my own personal style and technique. I create all oil paintings entirely using a knife, often in a limited colour palette and mixing only on the canvas.
The style of my artwork is modern, yet classical traditional and occasionally contemporary. The compositions are influenced and inspired by the realism and romanticism of my favourite post renaissance classical Masters and their timeless, romantic masterpieces. My artwork compositions mostly entail dramatic lighting and shading, in a high contrast. I simply adore light and am fascinated with its arguably undue influence on any subject.
Predominantly figurative, I aim to capture a carefully composed aloof anonymity, mood, atmosphere, drama, passion and emotion of the performance in a frozen realism, rather than characteristic individual representation of the performers themselves.
