A multidisciplinary artist obsessed with abstraction and digital art.
Hi and thanks for taking the time to explore a little more about me/him…. always struggle with the third/first person thing 🤔… it is me you’re curious about right?… let’s stick with that, first it is.
I’m hard to pin down, which is to say I’m a multidisciplinary artist. Exploring digital art and photography is a big part of my process but I love the freedom and fluidity of paint mediums. As a meticulous planner, oddly, I tend to oversimplify; create images through tonal use rather than colour variations. Evoke with depth and narrative rather than drown a piece in colour… ‘let’s see the wood’ I say.
To give you a brief background, my wife and I currently work as full time Artists in our studios by the beach in beautiful Port Douglas. I’ve spent most of my professional career working in television and print media as an editor, camera operator and graphic designer. Much of this has been based out of the U.K., working, travelling and experiencing art in Europe, the Middle East, the US and Latin America with my amazing wife, Cheryl, an insanely talented professional artist of more than 25 years. She opened my eyes to Antoni Tàpies, Ben Nicholson, Cy Twombly and Diego Rivera, the list is endless and the experiences are priceless. I can credit her for encouraging me to take my musings more seriously and stepping out of the shadows.
My paintings can be split three ways.
Tonal Paintings – abstractions of feel, exploring those over simplified, muted palettes.
Loose Lines – abstractions of places, ideas and experiences blended into distilled representations.
Graphic – using heavy black line work, these paintings play with tone and whimsical narratives, exploring issues close to my heart. They take a great deal of planning, I work countless hours in my journal and on an iPad and desktop, simplify iconic images, contextualising, reworking and then compiling into large paintings using acrylic paint, markers and charcoal.
So, I hope you enjoy my paintings. My pieces are painstakingly executed and prepared and are of a quality that will hold their own in any space, contact me if you have any questions.
