About The Artist

I am an artist based in Chobham, Surrey. My artwork ranges in a variety of media, from oil painting to tempera, watercolours, acrylics and mixed media.

It is mainly figurative, though some of my pieces can be abstractions of figurative forms. I work on objects, single items or still life and landscapes.

I do not mimic reality and look for a personal vision of shapes and colours sometimes disregarding proportions. Impressionistic views merge with a surrealist vision in my work and a poetic interpretation of reality, sketching and drawing, are always my first steps towards a finished work. Then I choose the media that
best suits the composition. Sometimes I try different media for the same subject, to see which one interprets the form and thought I mean to convey.

The picture needs to speak to the viewer, communicating multiple sensations and engaging them in the story. Then I choose the media that best suits the composition.

I am also a writer and my inspiration, both in writing and in painting comes from where I live, what I do and the people I meet. It can be a view of the English landscape, flowers on a wall, working in my back garden, or an encounter. I am also very much inspired by travels, the changing of seasons, exhibitions and memories.

I think most of my work is a revisitation of memories of what I saw and experienced in the recent or distant past.
