Mystique – Visual Art Open Finalist
One of my favourite paintings Mystique has been fortunately selected as a Visual Art Open Finalist in their competition and the original will be featured from 15th – 17th November at the Chester Arts Fair, Chester Racecourse (CH1 2LY). It’s one of 35 out of over 1,000 entries, only 6 of which are paintings / mixed media, so I am extremely lucky. So far so good and fingers crossed!
It’s so dark, dramatic and moody with a hint of sensuality. If you are in the area, please visit the exhibition and let me know what you think!
The original is for sale at the exhibition and you can also purchase a print as a gift for a loved one…
I hope to attend the VIP preview evening on Friday 15th.

Starving Artist, burning the midnight oil and candle at both ends... The style of my artwork is modern, yet classical. Predominantly figurative, the tendency of my artwork is towards carefully composed anonymity, capturing the emotions and self belief of the subject, rather than characteristic individual representation. The creation of figurative artwork not only depicts the emotions of the artist, it transforms the artist's emotions. Art should be proudly displayed, carefully scrutinized, and in order to benefit to the fullest extent possible, it should be understood from the perspective of its creator - the artist. My figurative artwork is sensual and my ballerinas and dancers are passionate, moody and emotional. My preferred lighting, shading and contrast are dramatic. I simply adore light and am fascinated with its arguably undue influence on any subject. I delve extensively between the extremes of highlights and lowlights in my artwork in a chiaroscuro technique, occasionally minimalist, often leaving the viewer's mind to complete the picture and to add depth. I always strive to create an atmosphere in whatever I produce, at the highest possible quality and using either a knife or brush and a very limited colour palette of oil paint or pastels, usually alla prima, mixing and blending only on the canvas!
