Thank you for showing an interest in my work. Since primary school, I have had a passion for creative arts. I can recall painting displays for my school hallways in vibrant and bright colours. The sense of pride and achievement felt at such an early age at creating an original piece of work is a life long memory.
There are so many Artists I admire here are my top five: Bridget Riley/Frank Stella/ Robert Delaunay/Wassily Kandinsky and Jackson Pollock.
Many things influence me when creating my art, unusual shapes. A great lover of music, listening to music while painting gives me great movements. Fabric, that's why I enjoy texture in my work. Astrology and the universe. Unusual crazy faces. Also I collect small objects, my studio is full of all kinds of stuff ie: old match boxes any thing I can get hold of to create fabulous collage.
Poetics, I tend to stay away from it I find it very depressing, dark and dull. The world is a wonderful, beautiful place but unfortunately mankind is destroying it. That's why my art is very colorful being an expressionist I paint within, my painting show my personality.
The love of art continues into my working life. I have, amongst other things, created flamboyant children’s garments and crafted my own costumes during my time as a dancer. I have always been focused on creating art that will not only capture the mind, but also inspire the imagination. As a mixed media artist, I display work, which is strong and bold. My abstract paintings are influenced by my fascination with colour and texture. I am happy to experiment with different mediums and techniques in order to reach the desired final result. I allow myself to be very open-minded so that I maintain a fluid creative process. By having exhibitions and promoting my work I have generated a keen interest throughout the world.
Since leaving school I have done lots of different jobs trying to find myself, at the back of my mind i knew i had a talent in art. I worked as dancer and entertainer for many years also designing childrens clothes. In 2002 i decided to forcus solo on art. I have worked very hard and found that trying to make a livivng with in art is very difficult, there are so many artist out there trying to follow the same dream. To me art is like an addiction i can not stop, my mind is full of thousands of ideas, the good think is i will never come to a deadend.EXHIBITIONS- Wensly Gallery Ramsbottom , Bury - 2002 Outdoor Art Exibition Bolton, Lancs - 2002 Characters Art Gallery Bolton, Lancs - 2002 The Mall Galleries London - 2002 Sticky Stitches Craft Exibit' West Sussex - 2002 Bolton Museum art Gallery Bolton, lancs - 2002 Bolton Show Leverhume Park, Bolton, Lancs - 2003 Vernon Mill Gallery Stokport, Cheshire - 2004 Octagon Theatre Bolton, Lancs - 2004 Galerias De Art Ramon Vila, Marbella, Spain - 2004 Octagon Theatre Bolton, Lancs - 2006 Exclusive Octagon Theatre Bolton, Lancs - 2007 Galeria Flamingo Malaga, Spain - 2007 ,…Read More
