Still finding my artist.
I am a British Self taught oil painter, I have been painting in oils for around 6 years, while in education I have studied Art, Graphic Design and Animation making myself very varied in style and skills, I live and work in Manchester.
I have many artistic interests including illustration, graphic design, animation, sculpting and photography. However, my passion lies in oil painting, using different techniques and media to create art works on canvas. I am especially interested in art history and learning from the true artists of our past.
Within my paintings i tend to flow between two ways of laying paint onto the canvas It depends on my moods and how expressive I feel,
The first style is a very classical form of renaissance painting using many built up layers of transparent oil paint (glazing) different colours blended to create a unique style of a skin on a human being as well as on clothing, nature or architecture. using tight details to create unique scenes and concentrate on past and contemporary contradictions between different subject matter.
The second style I tend to keep to is a very loose and emotional deep thinking and expressive brush strokes concentrating towards the wild scenes of nature, scenes with the use of animals, people. Using thick oil paint covering the canvas with intense bright colours, contrasting colours. Creating interesting shapes and perspectives scenes of beauty, emptiness and true life.
I'm deeply inspired by nature, photographs, history, people. My passion lies in painting beauty and understanding what beauty really is, learning art theory, aesthetics, Art history.
Each painting is preciously wrapped in bubble wrap and a custom box to keep it safe for the customer.
If you are wanting a good price on a painting simply make an offer which is fine with myself, I would be very grateful of any commissions which people would love to have painted just get in contact with me through the gallery,

Spare time Is spent painting, while i have other interests in sculptures, illustrations and posters all in various styles and medium. While painting i have been fortunate to have been able to paint commissions from clients which i am passionate about. which are displayed through a professional personal online gallery space. I have work shown and i have sold over forty canvas around the world in places like California, Canada, China, Spain, France and Italy and here in the uk.
All my art work is signed, dated, I use special certification stamps and stencils on the back of the canvas to prove it's original. All the paintings come with a certificate of genuine authentication. On receiving news of my work to the client i have received great customer feedback.
Thank you for taking the time to view my work.
