Unlike most other modern Welsh artists, I was born in Yorkshire but brought up in Wales. Whatever your artistic roots I believe being an artist is a lifelong learning process.
My style is eclectic, which allows me to alter the execution of the painting to reflect how I see and feel about the subject. I sometimes enjoy capturing real life as it is, but increasingly now I choose to paint a slightly more stylistic vivid version, with great attention paid to colour combinations. The subjects of my paintings are often outdoor natural settings (I am a keen walker) involving strong shadows, reflections and colours that create interesting patterns. I am fascinated by the way a change of perspective reveals a different shape.
I do not however always use the observed world as a starting point. Some of my work is purely mental imagery. These paintings result from a variety of influences, I love the work of the artist Uccelo and of many native artists such as Henri Rousseau and I'm always interested in other local Welsh painters and artists in Wales. I am captivated by the rich jewel like colours, the clean unfussy lines and the balance of strong colours.
As a modern Welsh artist and obsessive painter, I derive enormous pleasure through being creative, and I hope this is reflected in my work and more importantly transferred to those who see it.
