An English Artist living in Roseville, CA.

  Born in Southampton, England, my passion for travel and adventure took me to live on the Spanish island of Mallorca. During my 5 years on this magical Mediterranean island, I studied the local culture, language, cuisine, vino and landscape, and it was here that I started my career as a professional artist.  Moving from Mallorca to California, I continue on my journey, attempting to honestly capture the beauty of this great journey, of life itself.

  Painting with palette knives allows me to apply paint thickly and to create texture. 

I love color and I'm fascinated by the impact color has on our souls.

My paintings are an extension of my joie de vivre, love of life, and my desire to capture the vibrant beauty of life.

 

"As the sun colors flowers, so does art color life."

"The art of being happy lies in the power of extracting happiness from common things."

- Henry Ward Beecher

"The essence of all beautiful art, all great art, is gratitude."

- Friedrich Nietzsche
