This has been a long time coming, and I’m so excited to launch my website!
I’m buzzing from the whole journey of becoming a full-time artist so far, and am looking forward to whatever it is that happens next.
People can finally see my work, and it’s great to experience the range of opinions that each work of art triggers in different people. I used to take it to heart when someone commented that they didn’t really like what I’d created; but then I found that the exact same piece would be the next person’s favourite by far! I’m way more relaxed about it now – I genuinely enjoy sitting back, listening to the “love it or hate it” conversation. After all, art is supposed to evoke emotions and debate: I would rather split opinions than have everyone think my work is just “OK”.
For all of you who have already seen my work, thank you for being honest and telling me exactly what you think – you’ve helped me to become the artist I am today.
Now, with my new website, you’ll be able to see some of the more recent work I’ve done. Just lately I’ve been focusing on creating oil paintings and sculptures that you can view in my gallery and shop… but who knows what the future will hold.
One thing’s for sure: I love texture and colour so I’m confident they’ll always be around. You’ll just have to keep an eye on me to see what happens next.
When I initially walk into my studio with an idea in mind, it won’t always translate into the end result. The truth is, my mood on the day affects my painting, and my painting can also influence my mood. It’s an adventure seeing how my work develops. I can get so lost in my work, but I enjoy the creative process and at the end of the day, what could possibly go wrong? Actually something always goes off plan when I’m painting, but you know what? That’s part of the fun.
So far, I’ve already done a few commissions, and I’m looking forward to being asked for more, so if you want a unique piece created for you, then get in touch!. I’m never lacking in inspiration – the list of things I’d love to paint and create is extremely long and is ever-growing but if you have any great ideas, then I’d love to hear from you!
