Me

The smallest and briefest summaries of me are that I used to run a dude ranch, Sunset Ranch, just under the D in HOLLYWOOD. My family are all back in England where I grew up and went to Art School. Last year I quit my job as an animal trainer for TV and film work because I had a baby.

Wine Paintings

So I started with wine, using the substance itself to paint images of good times. I want it to be like a coaster, the spill loosely gossiping about the people who where there. The daubs of wine dried and crystallized on the paper configured to look like past conversations, a rowdy argument, a misunderstood glance.

About my work:
My landscapes are an idealization, "Sometimes I want to crawl into the landscapes that I create, build a house there or make a sand castle. I see a perfect future, an ideal man, a woman I would like to be, the land I want to return home to." Like the dreams of cows or a crystal lake on a how dusty day.
I want pant to be paint. I want to see the blobs and swirls of how the image is manufactured. I love it when that daub magically becomes two things, a piece of paint on a canvas and the calming gesture of an animal trainer moving a camel to the left, or the nervous glint on the strippers face as she both leans in to the client and pulls away.
