I am an award-winning Urban Landscape Artist originallyfrom London, now living in Taunton Somerset, dedicating my spare time to fuel a lifelong artistic passion with a highly recognisable style of expressive line and fluid colour artworks, inspired by architecture and the towns and cities we live in. My fast and fluid style in ink, watercolour and acrylic is all about speed, rhythm, expression and creative license.
I gain my inspiration from the fusion of the modern age framed by listed buildings, historic shop fronts, archways and spires. Born through 'urban sketching', my artworks are all about rhythm and expression - not about a photographic representation but a more original and artful take on the form and colour of our towns and cities.
A LITTLE ABOUT ME
I am a UK-born artist now living in Taunton, Somerset UK
Known for my urban landscape artworks and architectural based studies, I regularly contribute to the Urban Sketchers initiative of 'on location' sketching as well as exhibiting nationally and online.
ABOUT MY PROCESS
The towns and cities we live in is my inspiration. The tension, the light, the depth, the anger, the decay, the majesty, the height, the people, the love, the sky, the crowds, the bustle, the atmosphere, the moment.
Rapid mark making and raw paint application techniques help fuel my lucid and fast painting style.
