Still life art

This is a selection of my still life art - principally oil paintings and velvety pastel drawings that explore the twin themes of beauty and space. Breathing space...

I paint objects that move me and continue to resonate quietly in the background long after I've transformed them into art. I am a "slow artist", returning to my work after leaving it to mature for a little while, so I can discover with a fresh eye the nuances that make it live for a long, happy time. My credo is "less is more". Away with clutter and noise. Focus on the few precious things you love. Quality, not quantity.
