Ripples / acrylic / 60 x 76 cm

I work in Oil and Acrylic and am always looking to exploit the medium – the crispness of acrylic and malleability of oil – sometimes I use both. Shadows and reflections often inspire me and I look to tell a story. Being a little colour-blind means I see shades more clearly and I try to take advantage of this.

I often work from my photographs and just enjoy experimenting with subjects and ways of mixing and layering colours on and off the paper. I use big brushes and rollers and at the outset usually have a clear idea of the picture I am trying to achieve; although this is not a rigid plan and I am often surprised!

I am a member of several local Art Groups and have exhibited at many local exhibitions in Berkshire, Hampshire, Surrey and Oxfordshire including Reading Guild exhibitions, The Reading Art Exhibition. AppART , THAT gallery and The Reading Contemporary Art Fair.
