After leaving Chelsea School of Art in 1995 and running a small
successful interior design company, I began to increasingly
focus on my first passion; painting.
I was born in Newcastle of Serbian/Italian descent but raised
in Suffolk. I developed a fascination for colours and textures inspired
by cosmology and microcosm, nature, cinematic special effects
but mostly inspired by music and lyrics.
I work on large canvasses, diptychs and triptychs using acrylic and
oils with varnishes and resins to create glossy multi layered flowing
images on a matt background. The final effect is a volcanic three
dimensional blown glass feel in two dimensions. The intricate images
formed can be interpreted in many personal and subjective ways.
Whether vibrant or subtle I enjoy experimenting with colours
and the way they combine to give the effect I am looking for.
