Colour excites me, grabs my attention and fuels my creativity. I use acrylics and mixed media to create bold expressive artwork that catches the eye and fires the imagination.
Alongside my love of colour, my work is also influenced by geological formations, the dramatic coastlines of West Cornwall and anything that grabs my attention, like a line from a song or a bunch of plastic spades at the seaside.
I work quite quickly and instinctively. Once I’ve selected my palette, I get to work with painting knives, rubber tipped brushes and colour shapers liberally applying acrylic paint, often straight from the tube, scraping and mark making. Visitors to my open studio will see a selection of my tools and paints and can chat to me about my creative process.
My work is regularly exhibited in the West Midlands and has also been shown in London, Surrey and St Ives. You may have seen my largest artwork to date outside the city's art gallery and museum last summer. Jackson was one of the elephant sculptures in Worcester’s Big Parade art trail.
During both Worcestershire Open Studios weekends, I will be sharing a selection of original artwork created in my home studio and during a recent trip to St Ives. Brand new works and my popular bold, expressive miniatures will feature alongside larger statement pieces that really pack a punch and slim works that are the perfect fit for narrow spaces. Take a closer look at my work and you will discover mesmerising contours of colour, intriguing marks and undulating textures.
Visitors will get the chance to enter my pick a palette competition and win a small artwork in the colour palette of their choice. You can stock up on greetings cards and buy cushions, mugs and notebooks depicting vibrant extracts captured from some of my artwork. There will also be a little creative inspiration for younger visitors to take away.
