Vibrant, textured paintings in oils
I paint seascapes, landscapes, still lifes; mostly in oils. My art is about experiencing life with wonder and joy, about moments that touch me with their beauty.
About My Art
My art is about my experience of life and about experiencing it with wonder and joy. It is about finding poetry and magic in the places I visit and the objects I own or happen to come across.
I aim to capture the emotions and memories that I would want to re-live when everyday life becomes mundane or stressful, fleeting moments which touch me with their beauty, the views that make me stop and look with awe, and objects that inspire me, awaken memories or make me dream.
I usually paint in oils, using the alla prima, wet-on-wet technique. My paintings are colourful and rich in texture. For me, the tactile nature of oil paints makes the creative process very enjoyable and playful. At the same time, though, it is an extremely focused and almost meditative experience. The painting process allows me to explore my subject; to be for a while with the feeling that was the initial reason for my desire to choose it for my painting.
I hope that viewers will respond to my art emotionally and perceive a little bit of the same poetry that moved me to create.
