16.5x11.8 in ~ Drawing, Pastel
My true passion is in colour and how the arrangement of colour can produce a different emotional experience of art. I want to create paintings which draw the viewer in, which makes them stop…and then see more than the initial work form and colour.
I have a lot of influences from Lucian Freud, Picasso to Botticelli. A few years ago, I was given a book of Botticelli's works; his use of colour instantly struck me.
Since then, I have grown bolder and more spontaneous, too, using the palette knife to build texture into my work. I like to sculpt the paints with my palette knife and feel the passion and emotion as the image takes shape on the canvas before me.
I don't live in Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen, Dubai, Frankfurt, Geneva, Hamburg, Hong Kong, London, Monaco, Monte Carlo, Malibu Beach, New York, Nice, Paris, Rome Shanghai, Singapore, Tokyo, Zurich, or Taiwan. But I've sent my work there. In fact, I've now sent my work to 48 countries.
