Artist from London, UK. I work with gouache, watercolours, acrylic, graphite, pastel and pyrography. Capturing moments from portraits to pets, from buildings to scenery, from weddings to parades, there is no subject I haven't touched and haven't loved creating
Capturing moments; I love to paint, to draw, to create no matter the subject, everything is special and has its own magic in my eyes. Fascinated by life, nature, the spiritual/energy side of things. From buildings to gardens, each brick has its own maker, their own story locked inside. From nature to energy, we are all a part of that magic. From pets to portraits, the souls are unique, their lives unique, their experiences their own, to me it is far more than painting a face or a pose. Capturing a moment, that 'something', that thing that you can't always put your finger on, but it is there.
So with portraits for example and the eyes being the windows to the soul, not only is a likeness important to me, but that essence of what the soul contains also deserves to be recognised, sometimes being noticed for the first time through a painting, through the viewer's eyes.
I am a self taught Artist outside of O'level at school. The one thing that always felt right to me on a personal level was to see things through my own eyes, my own experiences as with everything in life, and I'm the same when it comes to painting. I like to make people think, or to notice things they may not have paid attention to before, the little things that make the world of difference to us. Whether I'm painting part of a series, or working on a commission, to be able to provoke emotions, enjoyment, memories, love, empathy, curiousness or food for thought, there is always a story to tell, or a story to find.
I am grateful for each and every one of my clients who have enabled me to be a part of something so very meaningful and personal, helping to make a precious moment last forever. Whether it is through their own commissioned orders or the buyers and collectors who are touched by something that is personal to them hidden unbeknown to me at the time in something I have painted, there is nothing I consider a bigger privilege than being able to touch someone's life in some way, or make a difference with something that means so much to them and can be treasured for generations.
