Painting

Having been educated in architectural design, I particularly like to paint with a blend of light and shadow to imbue my paintings with depth and heightened interest. However, unlike architectural design, I like to be fine and delicate yet at times fluid in my brushstrokes, and not being hindered by rigidly straight lines or vanishing points, as I want the painting to reflect my character and its quirks.

In the last few years I have been painting with authentic-looking colours but still retaining an individuality and uniqueness, without making my art look photographic.

In most of my paintings I am keen to create an atmosphere of mystery, through the use of light, space and depth, and to allow the viewer to question what stories and narratives might lie within the fabric of the building and its ornaments. This sense of mystery comes out especially in the interiors I paint, where there might be a visual clue of drama beyond its walls.
