About This Piece
Head was derived from a series of charcoal sketches I did of my musician friend chilling on the sun terrace in Portugal. All sorts of media has made it to this canvas, and I love the way that he looks like he's breathing out musical notes. A pretty imposing piece that people have seemed to like. Sorry about the low quality image on this one. Sold a long time ago before I had a digital camera..!
I'm a mixed media artist, working mainly in collage. My inspiration comes from many sources, but my focus is texture, depth and colour.
I've got a particular passion for layering, building up colour and density over time, the painting growing organically directly on the canvas.
As my work is very textural, it's often easier to appreciate if you can see it close-up or from a few different angles. I have lots of close-up photos which I can send over, please just email me and I'll arrange.
I hope that people find my artwork both interesting and decorative.
