I was born in Yorkshire, UK in 1971 but raised in South Africa and currently based in London. Both the changing political climate of South Africa and the vibrancy of London’ s easily accessible live music and theatre scenes have influenced the work I have produced, culminating in a blending of cultures and experiences.
I mainly produce bespoke fine art pieces in oils, which have always generally been my medium of choice, though I also have some mixed media collage pieces with paper, acrylic, varnish and oils.
I have been focusing on portraits most recently, using my own photographs or ones taken by friends, with their permission. I manipulate the colour and composition of the original images to portray a new, more personal, meaning without compromising the original concept of the image, endeavouring to capture the relationship between a moment caught instantly in time and my interpretation of that moment developed with a brush over a period of time, such that the subjects are fluid in perception once on canvas.
All of my work is based on my fascination with light: the effects of colour flares in low light and reflections on different surfaces in changing weather and light conditions. Each work has a personal meaning to me, which may or may not be obvious on its completion. As the work evolves on the canvas, so does my meaning and the application of it.
