Artist Statement

I paint on canvas and paper to create expressive paintings
of noise for your walls to unlock excitement in the viewer of sport. I may
leave something out, adapt the light, highlight a detail but at the end of the
day it all comes down to hard observation to satisfy you the knowledgable
specialists in the sports – whether you are a participant or fan.
  
There is a noise element in all sports. Whether it’s the
coaches calling after the cyclists, the rev of an engine or the enthusiasm of a
crowd of fans.. I try to capture the intensity of that experience. I’m an
artist who likes to try to excite all your senses; to feel the splash of the
mud, hear the swish of the bikes, or smell the heat of the horse.
Anatomy and how it works alone or in tandem with a machine
or animal is key to creating a readable painting and a recognisable sporting
style to those taking part. It’s important for me to understand the torsion of
the body.
  Whether cycling, riding on horse or motorised two-wheels,
driving around asphalt or wooded tracks it’s all about the feeling and often
risk to obtain speed and exhilaration.
 The aim is to give a notion of motion in colour
