“Art reminds us of life’s infinite potential, wonder and grace”.
My figurative, animal & avian, mixed media & water colour creations range from light, bright and airy to melancholy & moody!
My water colour style is bright, loose, drippy and gestural with realistically rendered pockets of detail that breath life, vitality and playfulness into my creations.
While my mixed media art creations evolve organically through a variety of multilayered techniques (mark making with everyday objects, collaging with vintage and found papers, layering with abstract and drippy brush strokes, stenciling and spray painting to name a few) into intriguing art pieces where each layer’s story, history and texture peeks through to accentuate the final figurative and eye catching detailed imagery.
Being one of those crazy animal lover peoples – a lot of my art includes animals and birds. I usually create my wildlife art directly from my own experiences and encounters with animals locally & abroad. This adds quite a powerful and evocative feeling to my animal art – I also spend a lot of time, love & energy adding exquisite detail to my pieces, to give the viewer a real sense of ‘being there!” To share the magic of those perfect moments of the natural world at work.
Locally or abroad – I can often be found studying animals in their natural habitat…hours observing elephants on the African plains, sketching and photographing puffins on a Scottish Isle, inching closer to unsuspecting wild zebra in Kenya and making friends with Scottish highland cattle.
