Images are unpredictable perhaps even erratic, no one can be sure what affect they will have on the viewer. The image has the potential power to evoke intense mood and feeling, however only at a price, it must remain comprehensible otherwise all credibility is lost. My series of work entitled 'Distance Between Land and Sea' are a collection of large oil paintings (60x80cm) focusing on current global warming issues, incorporating a unique and perhaps alternative view of seascape artwork set within an environmental theme, questioning whether the increasing emissions of greenhouse gasses are contributing to the dramatically rising sea levels and temperatures. In this climate, many scientists are predicting extreme weather such as heat waves, droughts, tidal waves and floods to occur more frequently around the world.
Biography: Born in Liverpool in 1963. Returned to full time education in 1994 studying Art and Design at Barking College achieving a distinction before graduating with an honours degree in Graphic Fine Art, specialising in visual communication, at the University of East London in 2,000. I have since concentrated on theme based projects, covering issues such as the recent bacterial oubreaks within our food industry (BSE, CJD, Salmonella) and the subsequent concerns for health and animal welfare. As a past member of the Association of Illustration I have supported the charity 'Paintings in Hospitals', sold paintings via on-line art agencies and have recently completed a series of paintings conveying the issue of global warming exhibited at The Liverpool Academy of Arts entitled 'Distance Between Land and Sea'.
