The oil paintings shown here in the collection, are based on beautiful and inspiring observations of the sea and the coast. They reflect the qualities seen in nature, the movement found in the sea. The flows of water, the textures and patterns that the sea creates as it washes upon the shore.
It's been my aim in these oil paintings to show, in my own contemporary way, the movement found in nature, and the sense of space over the sea, the sky and the coast.
They are painted in a minimal, abstract way, in repeated sessions, one day at a time. Most of the paintings require reworking and scraping back many times until the final image is achieved.
My use of light and colour, texture and brushwork further develops the feeling of movement and rhythm, often in an abstract, expressive way within the painting.
The oil paintings make for a striking and unique modern addition to your interior space. They reflect my many trips to the beach over more than a decade and my love of the sea as a subject to paint.
