About The Artist
The vibrant colours of flowers have always fascinated me and I find that Watercolour is the perfect medium to capture their qualities. I think that their appeal is timeless and I hope to capture both the calm and vitality I always feel in studying my subjects.
In recent times my work has diversified substantially. Some time ago I was commissioned to paint a florist shop and the subsequent painting was reproduced as greeting cards. The result of that initial painting has been a flow of commissions on a series of paintings of local shop fronts and houses.
I have also been working for a company designing art projects for an online children’s store, which has lead to further artwork design for festivals, Great Ormond Street Hospital and for private companies. I find that producing work from such different subject matter enables me to return afresh to painting natural plant forms.
Shop, Pub or Business Owner?
How about having your business painted?
I have worked with a number of shop and business owners to provide a unique and artistic representation of their business. My clients always find these attract a positive reaction from customers.
Please contact me for a personalised quote.
You can also use the unique design in flyers, brochures, business cards, websites and other publicity. Some of the shops that I have painted have also had cards made from the prints and used these for gift vouchers.
Homeowners – How about an artistic keepsake of your beloved home? These in particular make a delightful gift for a close friend or family member. You can also have the design made into greeting cards to celebrate Christmas or any other events. Many of my clients have asked for this and I can allow for this in the price, if you are interested.
Change is always good and it challenges you! A little potted history of my working and learning can be found here, in addition to my past work for events and exhibitions and commissions over the years.
I admire the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh; in particular his ability to capture the lyrical quality of plant forms; also Paul Hogarth for his quirky take on architecture and buildings; and finally Elizabeth Blackadder whose paintings filled me with delight as a child. Recently, I had the pleasure of having one of my paintings displayed with hers at a London event.
I hope you enjoy looking at my work and I look forward to hearing from you if you would like to know more.
