I am drawn to the colour turquoise and have often incorporated it into my paintings. Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. It is a stone of protection, strong and opaque, yet soothing to the touch, healing to the eye. Its unique shade of blue, often blue-green, lends it name, Turquoise, to all things of this tranquil hue. The delicate veining or mottled webbing in cream or brown is inherent to the stone and serves to enhance its character.

The name Turquoise is derived from the French, pierre turquoise, meaning “Turkish stone,” because the trade routes that brought Turquoise to Europe from the mines in central Asia went through Turkey, and Venetian merchants often purchased the stone in Turkish bazaars.

I like to use oil paint as it is an adaptable and strong medium. One of the things I love most about oil paint is the ability to create depth and dimension in my pieces. With each layer, I can build upon the previous one, adding depth and complexity to my paintings. This technique allows me to create pieces wtth drama and dynamism.

Studying film and video art at the University of Plymouth has impacted on the way I paint. Creating a sense of movement and escapism in my work is important to me.

Graduating  with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art in 2008 at the University of Plymouth, I am also an Art Ambassador for the English Riviera UNESCO Global Geopark.
