About

I am a self-taught spiritually inspired artist that's constantly being motivated by nature and aged objects touched by the hands of time.
In my life as an artist, I have always been fascinated by the use of underpainting and glazing used to produce the brilliance of colors and light in the works of Flemish Masters such as Robert Campin and Jan Van Eyck’s

One of my first paintings Grandmas Clay Vase was inspired by the wonderful childhood memories of my spending many summer holidays with my family in the Great House of my grand parents in Mandivelle. The open fields were the play ground for my brother, sister, cousins and I. Climbing over old stone walls, and exploring the weathered buildings, looking for treasures, come rain or shine this was our daily adventure.How our imaginations ran wild with the stories we told and lived.
.....................I cherished those days......................
The driving force behind my works is to capture moods that will take you to a place of sweet nostalgia to open your mind and let your imagination flow without boundaries to where you are now if only for a moment .
That's how I paint I capture a moment and go to the canvas and start painting.

I have showcased both my Fine Art and Objects de Art in various galleries and private shows through Jamaica, Florida and Birmingham England, and I have been contracted by hotels to produce Objects de Art for their dinning area.
