Wildlife art for the discerning collector
Latest off the easel...Young Bucks
My art is intended to celebrate our cherished wildlife by promoting awareness and also supporting the plight of our endangered species. Every painting is ceated with passion and often embodies a deeper meaning. The style of art has evolved over time maturing primarily into abstract realism. This was preceded by a contemporary minimalist, mainly black and white portfolio which has its roots in more traditional realism.
The combination of abstract expression coupled with recognizable representational elements is the hallmark in this portfolio. The quest for uniqueness without losing sight of the key wildlife elements is important. Each painting is made up of thick impasto with multiple glazes or layers of both translucent and thick opaque paint. Whilst the glazes in the background are applied using a brush the final images are rendered using only a variety of palette knives and other utensils. The end result is a textured painting with rich complexity that is both modern and expressive.
