Beauty, Body Paint, Commercial, Dance, Fashion, Landscape, Nude, Portrait, Promotional and Sheer
Thank you for taking time to look at my work.
Please note! I am awaiting a major operation and whilst, at the moment, I can still travel and do manage some photographic work; walking any distance, and movement can be very problematic for me. Should be fully up and running by the end of the year!
I am a full time artist(Watercolours and Oils) and photographer based near the Northamptonshire, Leicestershire, Warwickshire boarders. I believe true Art captures the beauty in light, and I constantly search for the light. My work is varied; my paintings are often landscapes, but I also do a lot figure work; both portraiture and implied/art nudes sometimes with a bit of an edge to them. My passions usually involve symmetry, curves, shapes, shadows, water, mountains, beaches, sunsets, ripples and reflections.
I worked for a time as a commercial illustration Artist along side my full time chosen career; my life is now such, I can devote all my time to following my artistic passions. I have exhibited in the South of France, and through some Leicestershire galleries and have also organised my own very successful exhibitions. I always welcome commercial based work, and also take on some private commissions; usually if the ideas behind the art work inspire me. So if you have an idea, please contact me and stir my artistic mind. I paint for money, unless an idea holds merit enough for the experience to be mutually beneficial.
I also run instructional watercolour classes, demonstrating and teaching watercolour techniques. I supply all materials and participants take away a finished painting, that they usually want to hang on their wall at home.
My Photography has developed from using photographs as reference for my paintings, but my photographic passions are similar to those as when I paint. I am a natural light photographer, I do not possess ‘Flash'! I strive for excellence in all my artistic endeavours and my main intention in joining purpleport is to build a photographic portfolio of beautifully crafted, location based, (Mountains, water, coastal cliffs and paths, beach, waterfalls, woods and trees) or themed portraiture of 'ladies in the landscape' (I am a 'Waterhouse' looking for his 'Shalott!). I lean heavily towards sultry pensive looks of females with pale skin and red or dark cascading hair(Mostly, but not always); working up to implied or artistic nude. I do not do adult! I can travel and I have photographed extensively on the Jurassic Coastline, Cornwall, Brecon Beacons, Pembrokeshire, Snowdonia, Yorkshire Dales, Coast and Moors, Scotland(Western Highlands), France and Iceland; so don't think you are outside my area; I will travel almost anywhere for the right looks and location.
If you see something in my work that suits your needs, please do not hesitate to contact me. I work hard and possess an astute artistic mind and imagination with a working understanding of printing, publishing and deadlines; through my work as a commercial Illustrator.
