Arts, Artists, Artwork
I’m a landscape and wildlife artist creating vibrant art in a mix of impasto and bright fauvism style. As I work I feel I capture the mood and character in the colours. Bright, bold and beautiful. My love for nature and wildlife runs deep, from to my childhood up to my past career as a Wildlife Crime Police Officer, I love nature and know all too well the damage mankind inflicts on the world. Now having left the role of a Wildlife Crime Officer, I draw on my art to help raise awareness and support wildlife conservation charities to help continue the protection. I am now based in the heart of the New Forest, England and am surrounded with inspiration which I enjoy with my young family and dog. But I grew up in Wales and spent my youth being drawn to the fields and the beaches of the U.K’s first designated area of outstanding natural beauty, the Gower Peninsular. I escaped the city to surf and relax in the fields around campfires whilst listening to music. I found myself happiest being immersed in the colours and movement of either the waves or sat amongst the flowing grasses and flowers with friends. It is this form and fluid motion of frothing waves being mirrored in the flow of my art. I graduated in a BA Art and Multimedia degree in 2004, and in 2006 I joined the Police Force and served as a Police Officer learning a whole new set of life lessons. However my passion for nature and wildlife took ahold and led me to becoming a trained Wildlife Crime Officer. After leaving the Police due to an injury I was unable to fully recover from, I am now based in the heart of the New Forest gaining inspiration from my passions and surrounding, and I love nothing more than being locked away in the studio with my paints, music and my loyal companion Daisy (the dog) Studied a BA Hons Art & Multimedia from Swansea Institute of Higher Education (now Swansea College of Art University of Wales Trinity Saint David. UWTSD). By the end of my degree I could express my art in a multitude of forms from pencil and paint to illustration and 3D animation. I found the whole experience enlightening, and it is this love to creatively branch out in new artistic methods that would repeatedly come back to me working me leading me to working oil paint by finger tips.
