Paint is to be relished on many levels, from the instinctual and emotional, to the sensual and evocative.
My thinking is centred on the activity of applying paint, and I feel as well as think through it.
I am very much looking forward opening the doors to my studio and see you all here.
I will show a selection of original oil paintings in the setting where they got created. The studio is my place of work and I spend most days here pushing paint, thinking art, pondering, reading, in winter freezing, in summer chilling. The setting is inspiring as it is in a very rural setting and part of a working farm. I am surrounded by colourful mementoes, by paintings, art books, canvases, tools, brushes, paints, by flowers from next doors florist (Emma, Cowshed flowers) and the chatter from the pottery school around the corner (Sue and Ben Drew).
I am an expressive contemporary oil painter working in my studio in Clanfield and living in Kelmscott by the Thames. I was born in 1979 in Germany and after my degree in Sports Marketing travelled extensively through my work in Motorsport Marketing before moving to the UK, where I now happily live and work with paint.
My work is in private collections in the US, the British Virigin Islands, Ireland, the Uk, France and Germany.
