Welcome

I hope you will share the joy in my art that I have in creating it.

An abstract painting with cool blues and greens. Clouds of white and a green yellow erupt at the bottom of the piece and lines, streaks and bubbles of colour, including shades of blue, yellow, and a hint of purple rise up towards the top of the piece. It is very calming and relaxing.

There is a hint of a Buddha face behind colourful clouds. You can just see one eye that is closed, and highlighted in dark blue, the edge of a nose and the suggestion of a mouth. The rest of the piece is a relaxing and peaceful, dreamy collection of pastel colours all intermingling.

My Aim

An Italian courtyard scene. We look down a flagstone path, past various containers planted with flowering plants, many of them white flowers. It is nice and shady and the buildings are dark sand coloured. As we look further into the centre of the image we see a courtyard in full sunshine with a table, with a tablecloth, and chairs, just behind a water station. Beyond the table there is a half open wooden door in a white building. There is a sign for a restaurant. It looks very inviting.

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 am a highly spiritual person, and often that is reflected in my artwork. I also, really enjoy creating my colourful painted abstracts.

An abstract acrylic painting featuring deep purple, lilac shades and pink with yellow highlights.But I also specialize in photo art, also known as photo painting. This is where I take my own photographs and then enhance them digitally on my computer to give them an artistic feel. In my processing of the photographs I endeavour to give the piece a feeling, an emotion, of how it felt to stand and look at a particular scene, for example. 

A cheeky gray tabby cat peeks through a doorway. The doorway is light wood and the door is only slightly open. We can see part of the head and shoulders of the cat. One ear is clearly pricked, the other is slightly hidden by the doorway. She is staring quite intently at you.
Looking From The Other Side

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 armour. As you can see, I have quite an eclectic collection that is worth browsing through. Don’t forget to check out my Jigsaw Puzzles that are available from various outlets and I have a series of calendars that will be available soon.

Two beautiful purple clematis blooms with bright yellow, spikey centres, sit mingling with green leaves. The colour on the flowers is dappled with light and shade, so the purple varies from very pale to quite dark. The contrast of the purple with the yellow stamens is quite striking.

My art includes original paintings that I have made available to purchase as prints from my print stores.

I am a keen storyteller and write a blog including my thoughts on art, living in Italy and various short stories. It is very fulfilling to be able to combine my art and writing. I also guest blog for various publications.
