Artistic Intention

Over the years painting has become a personal journey of discovery for me. For a long time I took a sort of 'trial and error' approach to painting. I would see artwork that struck a chord with me and subsequently attempt to recreate the essence of these works in my own paintings. I was never happy with the results though and always felt frustrated that I hadn't found my own 'voice'. It's only recently that I've began to realise that someone else's view of the world is exactly that; someone else's view of the world! My intention is therefore to look and think carefully about what 'I' see and ensure that I capture this in my painting. I want my paintings to tell the truth. We all see the world differently, but maybe in my paintings you'll see something that resonates with you too.

Buying a painting isn't like buying a mass produced product. You're buying a 'piece' of the artist, a moment in their life and their unique view of the world. I want my customers to feel that they have a connection with me and will therefore do my utmost to ensure that you are completely satisfied with your painting and the service that you receive. If you'd like to commission a painting please contact me and we can discuss your requirements.
