BIO

I am self-taught as an artist and realise that that is both a blessing and a hindrance.While I don’t have the vocabulary of ‘schooled’ artists, I know I carry colour in my head – that is a tremendous gift.

From the collection of paintings offered here you will understand that I am first and foremost an abstract painter. So-called ‘paintings of nothing’ fascinate me, much more than figurative or representational art. I am currently working on what I call ‘hiding and revealing’ in my art. This helps me find the simplicity I’m trying to express and there is a high degree of chance incorporated. I work in a variety of media, usually in small scale format. I am highly experimental, and so you’ll see soap used with watercolour, or 3M tape used in collage.

The ‘series’ that are shown in the collection give you an idea of the evolution of my work over the past decade and more, and the most recent paintings appear first. I’ve built up a repertoire of painting multiple panels, framing them within a long casing. I work a lot with collage, using tape and found materials.

I currently work in my studios in Venice, Italy and Bangkok, Thailand. Works are available there, plus in London.
I organise watercolour workshops to paint landscapes in the Venetian Lagoon and in Extremadura, Spain.

I am represented by Tobian Art Gallery, Via Maggio 8R, Firenze, Italy

Works earlier than 2010 are not part of this website.
