I studied art at Eastbourne College of Arts and Technology in 1997 and in 1999 I went on to study a BA Hons degree in Design. I have always been interested in painting and since early 2007 I have been working as a professional artists specialising in oil painting.
My work is mainly figurative, often with an element of surrealism; exploring the relationship between people and place in urban and natural environments.
I am interested in capturing emotions within my work; it is the human figure that becomes the focal point in my paintings and it is the connection that the viewer makes with this figure that brings the image to life
In recent work I have been looking into the aggressive and violent side to humanity; pictorially combining the male figure with animals that are perceived – through their involvement with blood sports - to be aggressive.
