Joyful colourful artwork to brighten your space
Hi :) I am an illustrator based in the south east of England with passion for creating unique pictures of places I visit and filling them with stories. Since studying illustration at Falmouth Cornwall many moons ago, I now exhibit and create artwork around the country. When creating work I want to give the feeling of a snapshot in time, with many stories either side of the scene. I also aim to include details that reward a closer look.
I think successful art allows the viewer to make a personal connection with the work in some way, drawing on their own experiences, hopes and dreams. I want my work to put a smile on your face every time you look.
I'm always driven to create something new, It's just a hard choice deciding what to draw next due to the endless possibilities. If you have any suggestions for something you would like to see please let me know!
So much to draw so little time
When I see something that catches my eye, a view or subject that inspires me, I start to explore ideas in my mind, layouts, focus and story. If on location I will make a sketch and then take reference photos of the subject so I can capture the details later. Working out the layout, tones and how best to tell a story within the picture comes next. Once I have that I will start to iterate from the rough sketches to work up to a detailed line drawing before looking at colour palettes to help convey a mood.
Artwork that can generate emotion in the viewer has a reason to exist, I think this is the challenge and the measure by which I judge my work. Adding details can go a long way to creating something timeless, something you can't absorb in a single viewing, with the energy to delight the viewer for years to come.
