After achieving a B.A Visual Arts Degree in 1999 from Robert Gordon University of Art, Aberdeen, Scotland (Validated by RCA London) & being represented by Philip Veneer Megivessey Fine Art, Cornwall. I have been campaigning to restart my artistic career, after taking a prolonged leave from my art profession.

Returning in 2018, with greater maturity, stability and experience, I am driven to finally begin working towards continuing my profession as an artist, and private teaching. My inspirations are the human figurative form, and figurative landscape painting. These sometimes involve portraits.

This inspiration for art began from my earliest memory as a child, drawing at school, and visiting European art galleries in later years. A profession in art was always frustrated throughout my early years, and I was persuaded later in my 20’s to return to Art academia. My family travelled throughout my childhood, and i would also be caught daydreaming out of the window watching the landscape go by, lost in thoughts and visions of my imagination.

I look to capture feelings in memory, intimacy and or drama of a landscape scene or figure. Observing human nature and its interaction in the environment, the drama or stillness of light and darkness in both personalities and how they speak to each other visually. I use various old masters methods of traditional oil painting to arrive at an iconic image. I use these methods to build upon, to advanced my painting technique and style. My landscape work is often aimed and inspired by self-reflection, and my figurative work searches for emotive reflections of the human soul. I paint to always further development of my oil painting, to see and show the beauty of things around us, as Pierre-Auguste Renoir once said “Why shouldn’t art be pretty? There are enough unpleasant things in the world.”

Going from painting a few hours a week, to a few weekends, i’m pushing my work to meet and exceed it’s previous levels.
