Studio: 304

I am a painter working mainly in watercolour, acrylic and pastel.  Quick sketches are often done in pencil or ink pen.  I work in front of the subject as much as possible and find that this approach goes hand in hand with my fairly loose, figurative style.  Sometimes my pictures are quite detailed but I like viewers to ‘fill in the gaps’, whether or not they know the subject.  Occasionally there is a contemporary take on a familiar scene – my home city of London provides much inspiration and I am interested in depicting the contrasts that often crop up, e.g. the static and the moving or the old and the new.  However I have worked further afield and I am willing to consider commissions as per the themes featured here and on my own website.
