I’ve always been fascinated by the sky. It provides me with an endless source of inspiration because you simply cannot see the same sky twice. To me it is like a painting that an artist is continually working on, forever changing in differing levels of light, tone and shade and I love the challenge of trying to capture the beauty and the emotion that the sky evokes.

My paintings are not about realism, detail or perfection. They are about colour, emotions and expression, pouring your heart onto a canvas, bare and exposed for others to see. Every brush stroke is a cathartic healing process, an escape from reality and into peace. The sky is my favourite subject to paint because it reminds me that in comparison to its vastness, we are so small. Life too is small, so live every moment of it.

I use a mixture of acrylic paint, ink and pearlised powder. Here are some of my latest pieces, I hope you enjoy :)

All of my work is for sale, so if you see a piece you like, feel free to head to my website to find out more!
