Passion for Colour

I have always worked in a creative environment, firstly as an illustrator, then as a graphic designer, where I developed my own company DW Design. Later, I trained as an art teacher and taught in many different establishments, including several prisons.

After moving to Kent from London, I was inspired to paint this beautiful landscape. More recently I have been experimenting by incorporating gold metal leaf into my work, which has added another dimension.  I am intrigued by the tenuous link between the figurative and the abstract, which I am constantly aware of, especially in the landscape.

Here are some examples of my paintings, which include a commission.
