My inspiration and love of nature comes from living on the magnificent coastline of South Wales, observing the ever-changing weather and all its effects. Studying art at school and college I then took the opportunity to travel.
I was later trained in London to paint realistic and stylised mannequins for store displays by blending and stippling various designs using oil paints. This unique skill enabled me to travel across Canada for Adele Rootstein Inc.
Various commissions and creative design projects over the years brought great satisfaction, leading me to 3 years further study in interior design.
A commission to produce large, vibrant art for a city nightclub rekindled my love of abstract painting and on returning home to Wales to live 15 years later, I produced a series of semi-abstract cityscapes and skylines for commercial properties
Throwing caution to the wind, I now primarily paint intuitively in acrylic paint on canvas, blending a variety of styles to create engaging sea, city and landscapes influenced by the urban and coastal communities I have lived, travelled to and been inspired by.
Never committing myself to one style, my work continues to evolve and change directions, seemingly with the wind, resulting in each piece evoking either a sense of wild chaos or serene reflection.
