Description

PAINTING WAS A HOBBY FOR MANY YEARS BEFORE I WAS INTRODUCED TO WHITBY GALLERIES, NORTH YORKSHIRE JUST OVER THREE YEARS AGO.
MY QUIRKY, DISTORTED STYLE FEATURING LOCAL SCENES IMMEDIATELY PROVED POPULAR AND MY WORK HAS SOLD THERE SUCCESSFULLY EVER SINCE.

EXHIBITING CLOSER TO HOME DURING THE PAST TWO YEARS HAS LED TO ME RECEIVING TWO COMMISSIONS FROM WAKEFIELD TOURIST INFORMATION CENTRE AND CARDS SALES IN THE HEPWORTH WAKEFIELD.

WORKING MAINLY IN ACRYLICS AND BEING ENTIRELY SELF TAUGHT, I HAVE ATTEMPTED MANY DIFFERENT STYLES OVER THE YEARS, THE MOST RECENT BEING THESE SEEN HERE IN MY WEBSITE.

INSPIRATION FOR MY ART IS ACQUIRED THROUGH PERSONAL EXPERIENCE AND OBSERVATION OF THE WORLD AROUND ME. I STRONGLY FEEL THE NEED TO PRODUCE WORK ENTIRELY FROM MY OWN IDEAS AND PREFER NOT TO BE INFLUENCED BY THE WORK OF OTHER ARTISTS.

MY PAINTINGS ARE REPRESENTATIONS OF LIFE AND LOCATIONS AS I SEE THEM. EACH EVOLVES THROUGH VARIOUS STAGES OF CONSTRUCTION AND ALWAYS BEGINS WITH A SINGLE OR SERIES OF PHOTOGRAPHS.
OUTLINES OF BUILDINGS AND THEIR FEATURES ARE REDUCED TO A BARE MINIMUM, SOMETIMES STRAIGHT, SOMETIMES STRETCHED AND CONTORTED DEPENDING ON MY MOOD, AND IN AN EXAGGERATED MANNER THAT COULD NEVER EXIST IN REALITY. THE SAME APPLIES TO PEOPLE- SOMETIMES BASED ON CHARACTERS WHO TRULY EXIST AND SOMETIMES PURELY IMAGINARY, BUT ALWAYS DIFFERENT TO HOW THEY APPEAR IN REAL LIFE.
