Through my painting I aim to express an emotional response to being in the natural environment, a connection to a memory or a place. I seek to take notice and attempt to communicate a sense of openness and wonder, movement, energy or stillness. As you select artwork for your home I hope you enjoy personally reflecting on the paintings here. Each of the pieces in this portfolio are created using acrylic paint either on a birch wood panel, a canvas or on to acrylic paper. The surface of the work reveals something of the process with its interesting history of mark making in several layers of paint, mixed media, sanding and glazing. A beautiful top coat of protective varnish is then added with a final wax finish.
