Welcome to my RedBubble page, which is a collection of some older images,some newer artworks designed especially for RedBubble and a few poems.
My artwork is mostly figurative, stemming from my love of nature, architecture and portraiture and is informed by my appreciation of a wide range of artists, including John William Waterhouse, Frieda Kahlo, Lucien Lévy Dhurmer, Carel Weight, Mary Cassatt, Edmond Aman-Jean, Roger Dean, Kit Williams and many others.
I’m also a fan of contemporary artists, including Anita Inverarity, Jenny Saville, Barbara Glatzeder, Jennifer McRae, Kim Wallace, Wilma Dunbar, Angela Dillon, Michelle Simone Lagueux, Sarah J. Stanley, Shena Thompson, Catherine Howell, Rosy Long, Marie Albert, Wei Li Zhu, Marg Thomson, Esther Green and Alice Savage, to name a few.
Some incredible tutors have helped me to achieve my aims, notably Adrian Hall, Mark and Lottie Cheverton, William Connon, David Henderson and Paddy Dorian.
Several close friends have kept me going over the years.
You know who you are and I love you for standing by me and enabling me to continue my journey, as I hope to be a constructive part of yours.
Thank you for visiting and for any kind comments or purchases.
