My striking block colour stripe paintings are unique and very popular.
I wanted to create a landscape painting that was instantly recognisable but modern and striking in design.
I look for a good composition, then simplify the landscape. The stripes are painted freehand, this requires a controlled application of acrylics.
I am self taught due to a genuine love of experimenting with paints and techniques.
Painting stripes can be intense work and I often feel the need to paint in a freestyle.
I love anything retro and have also painted portraits in a pop art style in acrylic or gouache.
Born in Watford in 1968. Moved to the Isle of Wight in 1979.
Started painting in 2000, selling vibrant art to visitors and locals for many years from the Pilot Boat Inn.
A busy pub/restuarant overlooking Bembridge harbour on the Isle of Wight.
Moved to Dorset in 2012. Connections to the Island remain strong but have found new inspiration in the
Jurassic coast of Dorset and the Blackmore Vale.
I have exhibited at Quay Arts, Seaview Gallery, New Remberant Gallery and since moving from the Isle of Wight, have exhibited at Swan Gallery, Frome. Guggleton Gallery, Stalbridge. Dorset Arts Week. The Crypt, St Ives, Cornwall.
My paintings are now available to buy from First View Gallery, Stour Head. Cove Gallery, Weymouth and Seaview Gallery
