ABOUT THE ARTIST

Although always very interested in art history, I have only taken up painting as a profession in my later years. My creative drive is strong, and I derive great satisfaction from producing artworks that excite and surprise viewers.

My artwork has evolved over time, and in my recent paintings I have appropriated and transformed pulp magazine covers and modified the backgrounds to include animals or settings that convey a disturbing or surreal mood.

I capitalise on the vibrant clean colours and glossy nature of acrylic paints and gels, and subtly incorporate iridescent metallic paints and unusual interference paints.
