My Aim

I create art you will love having in your home as it will make your heart smile! Why do I create my art? It makes me happy! I aim to promote life, work and energy balance through my art, poetry and writing. Promoting the use of art for enhancing the mood of the environment in which a piece of art sits is an important focus for my work. And I believe in having fun while creating – it brings out the child in all of us!

My Art

I work from my art studio looking out over fabulous views of the Italian countryside. Usually accompanied by the lovely smell of incense and some loud music to dance to! I use a variety of techniques for my work, including painting in acrylics. I really enjoy creating my colorful painted abstracts which are now available on some absolutely stunning home decor, lifestyle and fashion products at my Contrado store as well as on prints at my other stores.

But I also specialize in photo art, also known as photo painting. In my processing of the photographs I endeavor to give the piece a feeling, an emotion, of how it felt to stand and look at a particular scene, for example. I create art that you will enjoy having in your home or business as fine art prints or on interior decor products.

Art subjects vary from travel images to cat and dog portraits. Central Italy, London, the South East of England, Copenhagen, Marrakesh in Morocco and Madeira in Portugal all feature.

I have some beautiful floral works available as well as classic cars, motorcycles and Samurai armor. As you can see, I have quite an eclectic collection that is worth browsing through.

My art includes original paintings that I have made available to purchase as prints. This short video will give you an overview.

My Writing

I am a keen storyteller and write a blog including my thoughts on art, living in Italy and various short stories. I believe strongly in having fun with what you are doing and I am really enjoying creating art and storytelling. It is very fulfilling to be able to combine my art and writing – welcome to my world! I also have a podcast where I narrate my short stories.
