Welcome to

Thank you for visiting my website.  I hope you will enjoy taking a look at some of my artwork, as much as I have enjoyed creating them.  My interest in art has developed since my school days. Dabbling in and out of college courses, evening classes and art workshops.  All of which has helped me to explore art techniques, learn from fellow artists and encouraged me to keep practising.

In the main I enjoy working in oils and pastels as I like using bright strong colours. These two mediums allow me to blend colours together as I work, and the capacity to overlay colours. I also paint in watercolours, use mixed media and draw in ink, pastel, and charcoal to name but a few mediums.

A creative artist in Southampton

The beauty of art and painting is to adapt and explore as many methods of mark making as possible. Continuing to try new subjects and ideas in meeting the challenge of interpreting what I see and imagine.  Sometimes the process and outcome is very satisfying and other times frustrating, but still it spurs me on to try something more.

Communicating through Art

If you find anything of particular interest, please feel free to comment or if you wish to discuss a piece of work that you would like me to create for you please ‘contact me’. Or take a look at my blog pages for some of the things I am taking an interest in.
