A little bit about me ……….
Having worked in the printing industry for 20 years with a special interest in the science of colour, my passion is creating art using only the three printers’ (or ‘secondary’) colours of Cyan, Magenta and Yellow (CMY). I am also fascinated by light and shape so two years ago decided to buy some paper and paint to experiment with and I haven’t stopped painting since!
I create all colour and shape on the substrate, no shades are pre-mixed. The way I spread the three colours (sometimes using a little white) depends on the effect I am trying to achieve in my mind’s eye. It never ceases to amaze me how the three colours blend as I combine them with all sorts of implements – palette knives, brushes, sponges, my fingers, even combs!
The colours flow and ebb naturally and organically, creating an effect which is both dramatically striking and easy on the eye at the same time.
As my art is abstract I give each piece a number rather than a name. For example, the one below is number 88. I like to let people see what each piece means to them – and I enjoy hearing about what they see!
