Although I work primarily in acrylics and oil pastels the emphasis on simple forms and strong colours in my work means that it translates sympathetically to digital form when needed.
I paint in acrylics because life is too short to wait for oils to dry, although I sometimes make final tweaks and adjustments with the aid of oil pastels. I also incorporate painted tissue paper shapes when I want to give a veil of colour, or a particularly crisp edge.
Influenced by European traditions of naïve and folk art, my inspirations are the landscapes and townscapes of Britain. I aim to create something that is cheerful and harmonious; a holiday for the eyes.
