About the Artist

For almost 20 years, I have worked professionally as an artist, painting in beautiful places with good light, such as Barcelona, Cádiz, Granada and Whitstable. I love to experiment-especially with paint, finding the possibilities endless. I also like to work with acrylics, pencil, charcoal and pastels. Recently, the paint has been thicker, the brushes larger and my approach more rapid. I have returned to responding part-abstractly, although my work is still representative, including many portraits and landscapes + I also like to create monoprints, making marks, usually though oil paint on glass . When painting, I often pursue a certain intensity of colour and sometimes, I take big risks, abandoning my brush in favour of lavish injections of paint. Despite these seemingly random acts, I am concerned with precision and motivated to create something meaningful that may connect with the viewer.
