Amsterdam

Found along a canal behind Rembrandtplein, the Dancing Houses of Amsterdam offer one of the most picturesque views of this charming city. Originally the houses were supported by wooden stilts, which eventually let them wobble as if they were dancing. Most houses in Amsterdam have been reinforced and are now safe to occupy. I was…

Dancers in Blue

Oil on Canvas, 50 x 60 cm Great bold strokes uncover composite figures, enveloped in the soft light of the stage. The figure here is just a silhouette, without outlines, and the stroke of colour alone creates the form. The soft gentle to

Embrace

A moment of deep intimacy is captured by this painting of two lovers embracing cheek to cheek in their own private world. Acrylic on Panel, Private Collection, UK Limited Edition Fine Art Print of 90, Size: 20 X 37 cm A beautiful large (A5) blank greetings card.

Ballet Repose

Ballet Repose is an unusual portrait of a resting ballerina which is based on life drawings of a member of the Royal Ballet. It captures the power of the female dancer, the strong woman behind the role, even when she is not dancing. Original: Acrylic on paper, 76 × 56 cm Limited Edition Print in…

Dancers V

In this painting, I allowed myself to explore the depths of blue, a colour I prefer and see as very significant. The composition played a secondary part in the work, as I endeavored to build the scenes with the wide palette of blue tones and highlights. It’s almost abstract. A Limited Edition Giclee Print on…

Dancers I

Oil on Canvas, 50x70cm I have always been fascinated with dance, with dancers and their flexible and strong bodies and with the lines their movements make.

Kerisa & Zind

My fascination with African masks and tribal art is something I built into this image. The piece is resemblant of a woodblock in the thickness of the lines and the simplicity of black and white portions. Two main characters are juxtaposed to one another and their names are invented. They are the constantly present female…

Tiroro

“Tiroro” is a tumultuous fight with an inner monster, a mystical swirl of conflicting emotions. Also inspired by the art of African masks, this piece has a different energy than the rest of the series. It is like a mask itself – an ethereal and somewhat foreboding symbol of something we cannot always understand. Buy…
