Pet Portraits

In 2018 I started drawing and creating portraits of dogs

Since becoming a dog owner in March 2017 I've been spending plenty of time out and about meeting some wonderful four legged friends.
During 2018 this has influences my artist direction as I have been completing some pet protraits.
If you have a pet and want to create a very special piece of art please contact me.

Dream Birds
A found surreal image made by random wax textures that realased these imagined birds onto the canvas. They inhabit an imagined world as if dream like. 
Montelaterona
A village in the Tuscany Hills, this scene shows the narrow alleyways that led to some of the village becoming deserted after the advent of the motor car. Narrow streets and memories of grandeur.
Painting - Places imagined 
I produced these painting based on imagined surreal enviroments, these are my impression of the world arround me. These are often created through building layers and applying paint with found objects. Media is often mixed to create texture that resonates with the world or comes from the imagination creating a sense of place. This work is for sale on the Art Gallery website.

India Mural - Tami Nadu  - 2014
For 3 weeks in July my family and me went to India to help build classrooms at a school. Whilst we were there we also managed to create this mural in this huge room which is the bedroom for 100 of the students who board.  It was great to make their enviroment better and a huge job but under my art direction it went really well and I am very proud of it. I have also worked on large scale backdrops for local acting groups so I am used to covering vast spaces.

2003 - Meat Dress

Reincarnation through light

In 2002-2003 I created a series of images by using animal parts that were photographed and photoshoped to create life in this organic dress. The parts were all see though and when photographed images and colours were projected onto the wearer. 

These images were printed onto large fabric hangings and exhibited in York. 

The theme of turing once was dead into new lifes plays with the life and death cycle, the ever recurring events that make us human, What was once will be again. 

The cicular patterns on the dress repeat this theme. 

Textiles provides a tactile surface.
