Biography

I am a largely self-taught professional Artist, born in Yorkshire and having recently relocated to Reading. I have extensively developed my own personal style and technique since Art College, creating all oil paintings entirely using a knife and mixing only on the canvas. The style of my artwork is a modern, yet classical / traditional and occasionally contemporary. The compositions are influenced by the realism and romanticism of my favourite post renaissance classical Masters and their timeless masterpieces. William Bouguereau in particular. My artwork compositions mostly entail dramatic lighting and shading, in a high contrast. I simply adore light and am fascinated with its arguably undue influence on any subject. Predominantly figurative, I aim to capture a carefully composed mood, atmosphere, drama, passion and emotion of the performance in a frozen realism, rather than a portrait of the performers themselves. I am an award-winning artist and have exhibited extensively throughout the UK and internationally.
