I'm fascinated by the limitless variety of designs & effects achievable using only triangles

Bio

Originally from Wotton-Under-Edge, Gloucestershire, I studied at the nearby Stroud College where I completed a Foundation Degree covering Photography and Illustration.

My portfolio now includes Landscapes, Botanical detail and Architectural studies in a Photorealistic style.  I also like exploring use of colour theory and create Abstracts, generally influenced by OpArt.

I am fascinated by the limitless interactions between colours and intrigued by the limitless variety of designs and effects achievable using only coloured triangles.

With the exception of my abstract work, most of my digital artworks are inspired and reinterpreted from my own original photographs.

Each piece consists of a  ‘mosaic’ of digitally hand-drawn triangles, each painstakingly shaped and placed to realise depth and effect.  I meticulously select the tones and hues of colours I need to achieve the effect of the image appearing to pop-out from the paper.

A number indicated alongside each work’s title denotes the number of triangles in the image.

As my output consists of original digital art, each piece is reproduced as part of limited editions, all giclée printed on the highest quality archival paper, using only the finest fade resistant pigments.

Summer Holiday

Newsletter

I think of my ‘Artist’s Year’ as running from September to August and am so grateful for everyone’s support and encouragement since last Summer!

Last week, exhibiting at the Three Choirs Festival in Gloucester, brought my current season to a close.  It was a thrilling event in a wonderful setting, with the opportunity to meet so many interesting people and such a privilege to be immersed in wonderful music too!

Now added to my long list of future artworks are the Cathedrals of Gloucester (above) Worcester and Hereford (the Three Choirs Festival Venues) when I have the time.

I’m already planning for next year at Worcester Cathedral!

SHEFFIELD ART IN THE GARDENS

Botanical Gardens

Clarkehouse Road  S10 2LN

Sat 7th & Sun 8th September 2019

Looking forward to my 2019/2020 season, I kick off with Sheffield’s Art in the Gardens, held in the famous Botanical Gardens.  This arguably the largest outdoor Art Exhibition in the North of England, with artists, sculptors and craftsmen from throughout the UK.

The photo above was taken last year when I enjoyed discussing my art with Magid Magid, then Lord Mayor of Sheffield and now a Green MEP!

Exhibiting there in 2018 was excellent and I’m looking forward to returning to such a fun event.
