Spellbound Tigress

Title: Spellbound Tigress
Description: Spellbound Tigress is a 36x36 inches oil painting of a semi abstract tiger hiding in a forest. The tiger looks over her shoulder at us looking deceptively friendly. Most of her body is in shadow and the view through the trees behind her leads you past her and into the distance. The background and the tiger are merging as if she is flickering in and out of existence like the Cheshire Cat of Alice in Wonderland fame. I had this appearing and merging idea in mind due to the precarious position tigers are in as regards their future survival. The style of the painting is contemporary art nouveau and the painting itself definitely has a presence. This tiger’s eyes will follow you around the room. The inspiration was simply that every artist loves to paint a tiger – who doesn’t? But I tried here to do it in a different, not wildlife art, way. Painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, ready to hang, not frame necessary.

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.
