I am a contemporary visual artist who paints the modern British seaside. Having lived
in Great Yarmouth for the past 22 years, I have long been surrounded by all the colourful
sights of the traditional seaside holiday - things like buckets and spades, ice creams,
hot dogs, fish and chip shops, fun fairs and amusement arcades - and I try to capture
them in a way that is modern and realistic, while at the same time acknowledging
the inherent nostalgia they evoke. As an artist, I am above all interested in colour,
realism and capturing the very essence of my subject.
Though recently Great Yarmouth and the seaside have been the main inspiration for
my work, I am also a keen ballroom dancer and have painted a series of pictures of
my favourite dances. These are currently available to purchase in print form, while
in the main gallery you can find original works for sale. I am also available for
portraits and commissions - just send me an email for further details.... email@example.com.
