I’m a self-taught artist. I find inspiration in nature,Romanesque and Gothic architecture, Early Celtic art, Prehistoric art and monuments, the Universe, microscopic images and whatever else happens to grab my attention.
Flowing shapes, lines and colours characterize my crazily textured and detailed artworks. Spirals and swirls and organically flowing forms are a feature of my work. I love to work in a flowing, free and easy way, seeing where inspiration and intuition take me as I work with pens, pencils and paints. I love to add metallic or iridescent touches to my finished works in traditional media, which keeps my inner raven very happy.
I’m developing skills in digital art, working out how I can make it work for me, and having a lot of fun with it too.
I like to explore new media and ways of working with it, but my signature style of art has black lines and bold colours and is intricate and detailed.
I hope you share in the great joy, pleasure and love I feel when I create my art.
