The son and nephew of professional artists I grew up surrounded by, and involved with art, but when the opportunity arose to for fill my dream of playing rugby in the English Premiership it was a chance that I knew I could not turn down. After many happy but injury filled years, painting provided an escape when I was unable to play and recovering from various operations. Moving to South West France in 2014 gave me more time to focus on my passion for painting and since then I have exhibited my work around the world. I am committed to providing clients with the best possible experience.
The project is inspired by the strong women with which I have been lucky enough to know. The pieces will explore the irrepressible strength of women who manage to thrive in a culture that seeks to restrain them in a variety of ways. That variety will be reflected in the variety of techniques and painting mediums that I use to articulate the pieces, and the strength and undeniable nature of women will be reflected not only in the composition but in the colours.
