Location: Camden Town

Having spent many years of my life in Indonesia my work is influenced by the yellow light of that archipelago, inspired also by Paul Gaugin from an early age, I have always been drawn to painting in bright clean colours.

The bulk of my work is in oil colour, mostly I enjoy painting nature and human figures. In my work I like to make subtle exaggerations to form, tone and colour in the hope of creating meaning, metaphor or to enhance a particular feeling or mood.

I am an avid believer in the usage of clean colour and I try to avoid working with a dirty palette. I hope that my work presents a certain optimism through its presentation of colour and subject.

I am about to embark on a portrait series of my friends and family. My plan is to go back to basics somewhat and to use realist painting techniques, but knowing me, I will probably be whipping my palette knives out and slapping chunks of paint on the canvas in no time!
