My creative practice explores my response to the natural landscape drawing inspiration from this ever-changing environment. With an intuitive use of colour, I love to work in a variety of media, predominantly oils and watercolour, to express movement, light and reflections. Through gestural strokes of my palette knife, building layers and texture, I create vivid images that capture the essence of being within the landscape.
The sea and water is a dominant theme in my work, and I have been developing a body of work with a more abstract feel. To the viewer my paintings convey a fusion of vibrant colour with a feeling of sensitivity.
I am an Art & Design BA (Hons) graduate, a member of Cambridge Open Studios, and the Cambridge Creative Network. Selected paintings are available to purchase from The Darryl Nantais Gallery and VK Gallery, and also from my on-line shop on Artfinder. My clients include both private and corporate collectors.
This July 2017, I am exhibiting solo from my new contemporary garden studio, showing my latest collections of artworks.
