I am an oil painter whose work consists mostly of still lives with occasional figure or landscape paintings, but really the main subject is light and shadow. At the moment my paintings are becoming more loose and colourful to bring out the sparkling vibrancy of light on the subject. Although the paintings start from direct observation as they progress they become more about what the painting needs to bring it to an aesthetic conclusion, although really you can never say any painting is really finished.

I exhibit locally and in London and last year one of my paintings was awarded the prize for the best painting by a non-member in the annual Royal Institute Of Oil Painters show at the Mall Galleries in London.
