New for 2021
For 2021 the artist is continuing to create a collection of paintings that focus on everyday items and surroundings that involve the artist personally.
It is a collection of bold and colourful modern artworks, a visual diary that makes the mundane and unremarkable both remarkable and interesting.
Working mainly from photographs, the artworks are painted in acrylics with the bold black outlines that have become a feature of the artist’s work, and in some artworks have an actual photo, taken from the original photo, embedded in the painting.
The photos, where taken on a mobile phone, are printed to the size of the painting, and transferred to the board. Elements are often omitted but seldom added. Angles of the environment and objects are as observed in the photos and add a new interesting dimension to the picture.
All the paintings are painted on wooden boards and include the handmade and hand painted wooden frame
