Summer Meadow with Swallows is a 30x30x1.5 inches oil on canvas of a wildflower filled summer meadow with two swallows dancing over it. This painting is semi abstract, art nouveau and expressionist in style and was my valiant attempt to the capture a moment last August when I was in a meadow near Lingfield in Surrey. There was an abundance of colours in the wildflowers, perfumes given out by the flora and fauna, the buzzing and whine of insects and constant jubilant birdsong. Swallows were flying over and around me very quickly and as I tried to focus on the birds, the flowers and trees and grasses in the fields and meadows beyond them slid out of focus as the painting itself reflects to some degree. It gave me a totally timeless feeling and I really wanted to catch and immortalize this particular moment.

I am a professional artist based in Sussex and I paint large original landscape and seascape paintings in oil on canvas.
My painting style is a fusion of Expressionist, Impressionist, Semi-abstract, Art Deco, a little Art Nouveau and whatever mood I am in that day.
I am inspired by the patterns of nature and the energy, colours and spaces of the landscapes and animals around me.
I like to think that paintings have ‘little souls’ woven into them by artist’s and that these are what call to a viewer (or not as the case may be) and give a painting presence and desirability.
All of my paintings have a story added in to them - sometimes humorous, sometimes mystical, sometimes with a message of hope or encouragement.
My aim is to make art that offers a glimpse of spaces and possibilities where people can escape the manic pace of life and imagine themselves somewhere better – even if just for a little while.
