A Slice of Heaven

Title: A Slice of Heaven
Description: A Slice of Heaven is a green English landscape painting of a riverbank in spring with lacy white wildflowers and deer. On the left riverbank can be seen cow parsley white flowers almost dancing out of the painting, and on the right riverbank a delicate deer stands watching us in interest as deer do. Behind her are two more female deer waiting to take flight if their leader does so. The edges of the painting are blurred to give the feeling of the scenery floating out from the centre the canvas. I like this effect as it gives you a tantalising glimpse of an English springtime landscape suddenly appearing. The colours are mostly shades of green and white. It was inspired, as many of my recent paintings have been, by long walks along Sussex riverbanks. This one particular piece of riverbank is most like the river Rother near Salehurst TN32 5PJ. It is 40x40x1.5 inches, dark blue edges, ready to hang, 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.
