a super engaging and warm gentleman,

bio

 

I am an abstract painter working from my home studio in Surrey.

 

During my Fine Art degree, I visited New York to see the work of the Abstract Expressionists, a movement, coupled with The Washington Colour School, which continue to inform my art today.  My formative influences were Clyfford Still and Morris Louis. 

 

Upon graduation, a career within the arts followed.  Initially within contemporary art, then later within the antiques trade at Christie’s; where I also sold my paintings at their charity auction. I worked as a Gallery Manager for an antiques furniture dealer and later moved into the financial services sector for several years.

 

I am pleased to have reignited my painting practice and am now focused on my career as an artist. 

 

I upload all new work and process videos to my Instagram page and enjoy connecting and building relationships with fellow artists and buyers.  To support or follow my progress, click the social media icon at the foot of this page and subscribe for news and offers below.
