My work is predominantly concerned with the depiction of people in situations that reflect everyday life.I attempt to draw attention to situations that at first appear routine but within this I hope to highlight a variety of human situations, experiences and emotions. Recent themes have focused on Dementia, African Emigration and Airport departure lounges. My current project focuses on shoppers on a busy Nottingham street.
I work with Acrylic paint. I enjoy working fast and I’m striving to develop a more painterly style avoiding the ‘tightness’ that I sometimes succumb to.
My aim is to is to encourage observers to look beyond the obvious. To look closely at my paintings and to share something of what I see.
Shall I go?
