My striking block colour stripe paintings are
unique and very popular. I have always been
drawn to good strong design. Stripes
particularly catching my eye on soft furnishings,
rugs, cd covers etc. I wanted to create a
landscape painting that was instantly
recognisable but modern and striking in design.
And so my first stripy painting was created.
They evolved and I found my style. I look for a
good composition, simplify the landscape by
following the natural lay of the land and draw
out my design onto a large canvas. I carefully
select colours to create a well balanced vibrant
modern painting. The stripes are painted free
hand, this requires a very controlled application
of acrylics and lots of time. These paintings
cannot be rushed.
I am a contemporary artist. Self taught due to a
genuine love of experimenting with paints and
techniques and sheer determination to create
