Artist Statement

This site is only a guide to my artworks, you will appreciate them alot more when they are seen in real life. As a Painter and Graphic Designer/Illustrator, art is everything to me. It's wonderful to have the ability to draw and paint what the eye can see. As an observer, I love to sketch in my pads and photograph most subjects transferring the visual information onto paper, canvas or the computer. I use both film and digital photographic equipment. I draw and paint virtually everything but my passion lies with the human body. I use most mediums such as pencil, pastel, charcoal, ink, watercolour, gouache, acrylic and oil paints. I am for ever experimenting. I also work with traditional airbrushing methods, as well as using the computer airbrushing technique. It is an absolute pleasure to share my passion with you and to speak about it through art. I enjoy sketching people whilst sitting in cafes. I am forever mesmerised with the colours of birds, the pigments of flowers and the reflection of light onto surfaces. I am influenced by many painters, from Raphael to Matisse, Dufy to Klimt and many others. So sit back, grab a coffee or tea and browse through, enjoy!! ...
