The watchers in the forest is a very large original oil painting - 48x48x2 inches showing a walk through a rainbow forest with watching deer. The painting depicts a very vibrant woodland path that invites the viewer into it and because it is a large painting, does it quite effectively. The path leads through dark trees to the edge of the forest where there is a clearing that is so bright you cannot see what is in it. But whatever is in it, it is something you really want to be there. At the edge of the forest with the light behind them are deer and stags. They watch and wait as deer do. The paint is very thick and was made by building many thick layers of paint over each other over several months. The dark colour in not black but is a series of dark greens, blues, purples and magenta which can be seen changing as the sun moves around the room it is in. The contrast between the dark and light colours makes the painting shimmer like a stained glass window. This theme is one I come back to often, partly because I walk in alot of forests and see deer in them, and partly because forests thrill me and terrify me in equal measure. I often feel I will find something wonderful on coming out of a forest - if I do mange to get out of it. It feels like life - part danger - part thrill but always interesting...

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.
