Welcome to my website. It shows some of my work in Watercolours, Acrylics, and also my ceramic sculptures that are created and fired using the ancient Japanese Raku method. Although this method originated in Japan it has been heavily modified by Western potters over the years and I have taken up this latter way of working with clay. It is exciting and unpredictable, qualities I enjoy.
I use Watercolours mainly for representational work although my selection and use of colour is very personal and does not conform to what you might observe. I do also use it, due to its extreme fluidity for some work which is more abstract. The origins of my abstract watercolours, and indeed acrylics, will almost always have been one of my representational landscapes or a figure study.
Acrylics I use mainly when I'm working on large canvases, and the subject matter is usually inclined to be more abstract, and once again it allows me to use colour very freely.
Quite a few pieces of work have been sold and appear here as illustrations of the range of my work. If you have any questions about anything, please feel free to send me an email at : firstname.lastname@example.org or use the contact form.
