Artist  based  in  North  West  England

Flowers are very popular subjects for painters like me who not only  like to experiment with form and colour but also because the meaning of a flower in art is extremely ambiguous and can  thus act as a metaphor for a wide range of deeper meaning due to connotations with beauty, sexuality, youth, innocence, love and romance. In this respect, flowers are often depicted in allegorical works portraying themes of life and death, youth and old age, love and loss.

Although my flower paintings are colourful, bright and expressive, a selection of them explore death and the fleetingness of time, but this is expressed not in a somber way but in celebration.  I often study flowers and leaves that are  withered not only because they are interesting in terms of line and form and the way in which the colours change, but because I love nothing more than to let my imagination run wild in order to try to capture the  energy of that flower shifting and passing on. In a world that is terrified by death, where humanity is constantly battling against nature to prolong life at all costs, my paintings view life and death in an alternative way, of letting go and accepting nature's path. I think that there is a profound beauty in that and although a living being whether it be a flower, animal, a tree or a person may have passed away and its physical familiariy is no longer apparent, I believe that  its energy certainly hasn’t disappeared.
