about


Art is colour, flow and shape.

In my work, I explore the forms of colour, contrast and movement in my animal portraits. 

Colour, marks and texture represents what I believe forms the foundation of painting and drawing. I love the way that you can tell a story through the energetic marks you make and can capture more in one image than a photograph ever could. It's our own interpretation of what we see and how we've explored the image visually and through this amazing medium of paint.

 

As an artist, I try to capture the unique personalities and emotions of the animals in my paintings - animals we think of as children like dogs to exotic animals such as dolphins. I play around with softness of marks, contrasting light touches to sharp detail in the eyes to intensify the emotional connection to the viewer.
