I am a still life painter using oil paints. My main subject is still life with the occasional landscape. Most of my recent paintings consist of natural forms that reflect the transitory existence of plants and animals combined with objects sourced from charity shops. Both contain within them an essence of the life before and have now been discarded as not needed. Hopefully my paintings focus on the intrinsic beauty of the quotidian nature of these objects which are painted from observation in the studio.
