About the Artist
My passion is making abstract art that others can enjoy. Creating art for interiors, which is uplifting and brings joy, is very special to me.
Although I have spent most of my working life, so far, as a photographer, back in 2020, during the pandemic, I was seeing so much doom and gloom that I wanted a way to bring joy, colour and optimism into people's lives.
Initially, I began exploring abstracts through fractal generating software. This quickly lead to digital drawing on my laptop and iPad and now I've returned to painting and drawing with mixed media; watercolours, acrylics, pastels, and pencils, on canvases and watercolour papers. I'm still obsessed by fractal patterns, not just the computer-generated ones but naturally occurring fractals too, and they are making their way into my art.
During the 1980's, I trained as an illustrator at Kingston University and was awarded a BA (Hons), before working for a couple of years as a freelance illustrator.
My biggest illustration was a 22 x 9 foot painting on canvas that was used as a backdrop in a car advert.
Although I loved illustration, after a couple of years I turned to my other creative love - Photography - and worked as a professional editorial photographer for many years. I specialised in photographing the beauty of the natural world, in particular, water; rivers and caves, in the UK and abroad. My work has been published in a range of publications including the Daily Mail, Daily Telegraph, Land Rover Owner International, the Times, BBC Focus magazine etc., and featured in a number of photographic publications.
My current practice is exploring beauty and expression through abstract art, which is the work you see on this website.
I work with digital media to create images that can be printed in any size from small to 3 meter wide canvases and fine art prints and am keen to work with interior designers to compliment thier design projects and schemes. My work is increasingly moving towards mixed media painting on canvas.
I am based in central London, UK.
