I have a selection of high quality prints and original paintings for sale and I am available for commissions. Please contact me for further information.
The changing weather and seasons and their effects on light and shade are the source of inspiration for my art.
I am originally from England, but am currently living in Lower Austria together with my wife and daughter.
The stunning local area provides many changing moods and vistas, and I am particularly interested in depicting light and shadows in summer and autumn scenes.
I primarily paint with watercolours and acrylics; the fluidity of watercolours is wonderful for capturing changing skies and water,
whereas I use acrylics to build up very detailed pictures.
I am particularly influenced by the French Impressionist movement, by artists such as Renoir - known for showing dappled light -
and by Seurat for his theories on Pointillism and complimentary colour theory. But I also draw on the long history of English landscape
artists such as Constable and Turner.
