Making "Waves" - see the creative process in action

Making “Waves” – see the creative process in action

My paintings comprise abstract elements yet somehow manage to make figurative statements. They can be inspired by anything at all. Even a beach walk. I live near the beach and recorded a few seconds of video on this morning’s walk. I wanted to see if I could use it as the inspiration for a painting. The… read more

Come with me on a creative journey as I paint a new work, “Sourdough”. Hear about the inspiration behind this unusual piece and see a behind-the-scenes time lapse video of its development.

Painting “Ocean Birth”

In this short time-lapse video, see how I develop and complete “Ocean Birth” in under 60 seconds. This painting was initially inspired by some cooking oil spilt on the stove.

Joan Miró

Joan Miró

Catalan painter, Joan Miró (1893-1983) was a native of Barcelona, Spain. Whilst also a spectacularly skilled sculptor and ceramist, it’s his painting that I’m going to explore here as that’s the medium that I work in as an artist. If you’re not familiar with Miró, you can read about his background and influences here. His style… read more

Jackson Pollock

Jackson Pollock

Jackson Pollock (1912-1956)  revolutionized American modern art in the mid 20th century. He developed an entirely original form of expression in which he literally, dripped, threw and even flung ordinary house paint onto large scale canvases laid flat on his studio floor. An accomplished and exhibited artist prior to drip painting, he realized that an… read more
