Stafford, United Kingdom
I live and work in the UK and have been painting for over 20 years. I have exhibited in independent art galleries and have sold original art. My early work began with the nude figure, using it to express emotion, power, energy and spirit. I concurrently began to experiment with more sensual and erotic themes, though these have been less well known until now. I grew my love of depicting the laced, velvet and black opulence of the corseted body and began to study Jack Vettriano and Fabian Perez. I am entirely self-taught.
I play cleverly with the way lace, chiffon and other fragile fabrics can hide and reveal simultaneously. I am excited by the use of light and shadow to achieve the same. My pieces are provocative, teasing and intimate rather than explicit. I often portray lone figures, inviting the viewer to interpret the situation. Each character has a story to tell and often I will place a tempting insight with each piece.
