Passionate about the power of archetypal symbolism, my speciality as an artist, international author and speaker is sacred geometry and colour.
Over 20 years I have dedicated myself to research for my books and talks, and also for the inspiration in my art over the last 10 years. Prior to this I worked with more traditional subjects, particularly the human form. My books are sold internationally in several languages to a wide audience. I am also privileged to meet numerous people with a variety of interests through my talks and workshops.
Currently my focus is on abstract expressionism and the blending of creativity, logic and spirit. It is my intent that every piece I create brings you a very personal perceptual experience. Geometry is either overt or covert in the underlying structure of the painting. Every shape has a unique purpose in giving abstract concepts, such as time, form. When used specifically because of their application in shaping reality and combined with emotive colours they have a dynamic effect that resonates with the viewer. Using mixed media and adding specific materials into my acrylic art, such as ground crystals or metallic leaf, add an additional layer of vitality and effect. This is alchemical art, where the intent, process, tools, materials and symbolism all play an essential part in the overall piece.
Being creative is playful, fun and liberating. I experiment continually with different styles, materials and sizes. Yes I do commissions, but only with a loose brief, such as a keyword or two, since too many constraints limits fluid creativity.
Prices range from under £100 to over £1000 depending upon the size and other variables. Paintings are signed on the back and on the side and I can include a Certificate of Authenticity. If you want a front signature please let me know.
Please note that the colours of originals might vary slightly from the images on your screen.
