Gloriously Free Under the Sea

Title: Gloriously Free Under the Sea
Description: A 40 x 40 x 1.5 inches large original oil painting of a purple and yellow tang tropical fish under a clear aqua and blue sea. The water is crystal clear and turquoise green and blue as a Caribbean tropical ocean is. The purple tang swims intent on his destination and around him is a large sea bed of rainbow sand and flicking light that recedes back into the distance until it fades out. The surface of the water and waves above are sparkling and reflecting fleeting bright light patterns on the sea bed. I like to paint single fish in bag ocean spaces as it give you a sense of space and peace to look at it and is also meant to empower those who feel they are flying solo. It is good to go your own way and stick to your dreams - especially to those in the arts... Edges are white, no frame needed.

Artist Biography:

I am a Sussex based artist who paints large original landscape paintings and seascape paintings in oil on canvas.

My art is painted mostly from memory after having visited somewhere beautiful and are an attempt to capture some of the essence of that place.


I gained a fine art degree from Brighton in 1983 and began my painting career as a portraitist and muralist. However, sometime in the late 90’s, after painting my 200th labrador, I realised I was crushingly bored and needed to develop my own painting style and began to paint landscapes and seascapes for my own amusement.



I am inspired by the patterns and movements of nature and animals and eventually developed a painting style that combines traditional painting techniques with more abstract and contemporary techniques.



My artworks evolve from simple ideas, usually after I have taken a walk somewhere. They are expressionistic, impressionist, art deco, art nouveau and something possibly unique to me in the feeling they evoke.



I like to think that paintings have ‘little souls’ woven into them by artist’s and that these are what call to a viewer (or not as the case may be) and give a painting presence and desirability.



My goal is to one day paint a place so beautiful I will disappear into it and never be seen again and to create worlds where others can do the same – even if only for a little while.
