Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT THEMES ARE YOU MOST INSPIRED BY?
I love my garden and growing flowers, especially in the summer when my sunflowers bloom. The soft petals and bright colours always attract my attention. I also find beauty in statues, the smooth carving and form is such a good contrast to the flower petals.
WHO ARE YOUR FAVOURITE ARTISTS?
I get so inspired when I visit art galleries and museums, especially ones that feature the old masters like Michelangelo and Van Gogh. The fact that the sculptures and paintings have survived hundreds of years is fascinating to me. I like to commemorate them in my work by using marble sculptures as inspiration.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR PAINTING STYLE?
I use a fusion of modern and classical art materials and techniques, from spray paint, stencils, markers to acrylic, inks to create impressive under-paintings. I then always finish with oil paint to bring the colours together.
HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN A PAINTING IS FINISHED?
Every painting takes me on a journey, I use my intuition to decide what areas of the underpainting to keep and what to hide. I used transparent and thick paint to build up exciting textures. I get energised as the painting is resolved and I then I know it is complete.
DO YOU CREATE COMMISSIONS?
I really enjoy collaborations, I have a bold style of working which shows through in all of my paintings. So if you have a favourite flower, sculpture or animal you would like to see through my eyes email me to discuss possible ideas. I do have a commissions contract and policy so please email me for a copy. I will also email a basic price list. I will forewarn you that my paintings are colourful so even the most tame photo reference will transform into an explosion of colour!
