Brand Ambassador for da Vinci Artists Brushes Germany

I’m a confessed brush addict. I’ve worked with da Vinci since 1991 and have over 400 brushes, each one used! I help them develop and test new brushes, and promote their brushes. They are artworks in themselves – da Vinci make nearly a million by skilled hand each year, with another two million made by their unique technology. There is a shape and fibre for every application. Trust me, I know what I’m doing!

ARTWORKS

15th October 2021

This painting was the centrepiece of Trip Hazard (2021), and marked a fresh approach for me. I sought to put more space into the paintings, to empty out the detail yet retain the surface complexity.

10th September 2021

Small paintings are often more powerful than their size. This painting is a rough and ready combination of scratchy lines and scumbled colours, yet manages a sweetness with its marshmallow pink centre – oh so yummy!

18th June 2021

I don’t usually describe my work as muscular, but the bold, red, calligraphic gesture at the centre of this painting asserts itself unashamedly.

28th May 2021

It is an honour and a pleasure to be the first “proper” artwork bought by first-time collectors.
