About The Artist
Based in Bedlington, Northumberland, I mainly paint in cold wax / oil mixed-media. For most of my life I have been painting and crafting in one form or another as a hobbyist. After many years working in IT, I now really hope to get my art into the big wide world.
My artwork is inspired by places I have lived and visited throughout my life. The colours, varying shapes of landscape from the Cheviot Hills in Northumberland, the South Downs in East Sussex, to the Peloponnese in Greece.
We had a touring motorcycle and travelled extensively on holiday for 20+ years across Europe.
From my perspective as pillion I could take in the varying vistas, the colours, architecture, vegetation. You could almost sense the essence of a place from the view from the back of the motorbike.
This has given me the inspiration and fired my creativity to create artwork now using cold wax / oils which Is a medium I find very flexible, to move the paint / cold wax across the paper or panels in a way I haven’t experienced before.
