People who buy my art want joyfulness in their lives. They want to be reminded of places they love and fond memories of special times and people. I paint with happy colours in my topsy turvy naive style trying to capture some of the qualities I admire in children's art. They have such innocence in the way they picture what's important to them. The difficulty as an adult, is keeping their joyous simplicity and clarity of vision. But I aim to keep trying.
Previously a traditional portrait and mixed media artist, I now concentrate my practice on making paintings about my life and lives of others in a contemporary naive style, inspired by people, places, landscape and memories of where I live in Marlow Buckinghamshire & Berkshire. I work mainly in acrylics on wood panels and canvas. Click to CONTACT ME for information about my work.
I accept commissioned work which involves a close collaboration with clients, often to picture personal elements of their lives, house and garden, town, favourite place, holidays, celebrations, people and pets. People who buy my art want to visually recall joyful times spent with special people in memorable places. CONTACT ME to chat.
I studied fine art at the Cyprus College of Art, where I lived for several years, and the Open College of the Arts UK. My work is commissioned and included in private collections around the world; eg USA, Canada, Singapore, France, Holland, Denmark, Cyprus, South Africa and UK.
