The beauty of the line; a connection. Intense, smudged, expressive, bold, subtle. Add in the shape, colour and texture of playful paint.

 

How to paint the sensation of strong, warm, fragile, brittle, quiet... expressive paint incorporates the sensation of its being. It's own vocabulary. 

 

I work at creating interesting junctions and shapes that form relationships; a dialogue with a different type of beauty - raw, rebellious and imperfect; imperfection is always more interesting. To create an oddness to echo that which lies within each of us and within the wider world. The strange. The absurd- as life is often truly ridiculous.

 

Current Work - The Lollipop men.

A light hearted interpretation referencing the British lollipop man and the children's wrapped sweet.  Designed to be hung on the wall; they can be free standing if placed in a floor holder.

Photographed here with and without the cellophane wrapper for clarity of viewing on line. Note- there is only one of each painting.
