About

Currently creating drawings, paintings, illustrations and designs for publication, digital images, designing new website, making short films, editing and promoting films and artwork via the internet.

Mission Statement: Aim to create, produce and distribute high quality artworks in fine arts, digital media and filmmaking, which communicate emotional expression, social consciousness and artistic creativity. Objective is to continue to aspire and achieve these aims; producing creative, individual, inspiring and thought provoking artwork.

As an artist, my main inspiration comes from nature; exploring wildlife,
environment / conservation awareness and astronomy. Abstract landscapes explore emotions and the subconscious. Capturing time and light are continuing themes in the imagery created.

I try to convey a strong sense of emotional expression through the work.
Emotions are expressed through the subject, sensation of colour, light, atmosphere, texture, mood and memories.

Creative Influences include:
Old masters- Caravaggio and Rembrandt. Also artists Miquel Barcelo, Susan Seldon Boulet,
Brian Froud, Giger, Patrick Woodroffe and Australian artist John Olson. Contemporary influences in film , digital arts, music , also in theatre design and dance.

Multi Media Artist: Dedicated, creative and imaginative artist in drawing, painting, mixed media, printmaking, design, photography, video, digital media and ceramics.

The range of media I work in has become increasingly wide ranging. Also exploring new media technology. In video and film, digital art and via the Internet. Also exploring projects in performance art.
