FINE ART

 

With a degree in Fine Art Painting from Norwich School of Art and Design, painting in the traditional mediums is still a passion of mine.

Working exclusively in oil paints, and on occasion hand mulling paints with time-honoured hand-made gesso ground, using french white chalk and rabbit skin glue to prepare the boards to apply paint on, and using the highest quality pigment paints working in grisaille layers and glazes to achieve my finished work.

Through my work I like to explore mystery and opulence of collected and found objects carefully placed together to give a sense of a surrealist narrative. Throughout my work I like to convey the sense of the unknown and explore light and dark themes within the narrative of the painting.
