Local, bright, vibrant, fun – my collage paintings are lively and colourful. Each one is individually created for a different effect. If you are searching for beautiful, original artwork at an affordable price, you’re in the right place! I work in a variety of media to produce paintings and drawings in a wide range of colours and textures. They can be anything: landscapes, still life, abstracts….then I tear them up and reconstruct them into quirky collages.
I moved to Dorset from Essex in 2017, and love living in a region with such stunning scenery, and a quieter pace of life. My favourite subjects are from the natural world – fossils, insects, plants and animals – although if you have an idea for an alternative subject, I’d certainly give it a go. Unlike many collage artists, I don’t generally use printed snippets from newspapers and magazines – the painted fragments are all my own. Once the design is in place, I set to work embellishing it with metallic inks, glitter and gems, and the whole piece is finally sealed with transparent water-based glue.
