Art nouveau inspiration

Art nouveau of the 1920s portrayed elegant patterns, interwoven tapestry like delicate textures and natural beauty and wonder. This watercolor painting is a take on this iconic style of art with an eastern European aesthetic.

Black pegasus

80s animation, illustration and art have always been a big part of my art style and my life. The high inter coloration and ethereal styles really inspired much of what I do. The New Romantic and New Wave and synth pop scenes in the 80s music scenes really influenced alot of this art style with elevated tones, colours and designs. I designed this high fantasy and ethereal black pegasus image from my love of the 80s.

Morpheus, the Endless

Heavily influenced by surreal comic art, this is a sort of tribute to The Sandman series by Neil Gaiman. His works, along with co- artist illustrator of the series Dave Mckean, have given me much inspiration throughout the years I have been doing art. This illustration, watercolor and pencil sketch concept is my depiction of morpheus, endless of dreams, non reality and the never ending void beyond.

Post punk spunk

A rich mixture of textures in collage, oil paint, watercolour and pencil. Being highly influenced by the underground, post punk and goth scene, this portrait is about the raw energy and explosion of musical and fashion influences those music scenes and sub cultures created.

Surreal art practice

Surrealism and abstract perspectives is something I love to experiment with. Lately I haven’t been using my WordPress account but I want to get back up and running and post some new artworks. I’ve been practicing with line and textures with various materials more out my comfort zone. Collage, papers, paints, chalks as well as pen and pencil are just some of the materials used. I usually do organic works, and enjoy chaotic imagery and reflection.¬†

Narwhal mermaid

So I have been doing a project with a dear friend and we are collaborating on doing an illustrative series of mermaids. We are doing one for each month so I kicked off with January and did a frosty, wintry illustration of a narwhal mermaid in the polar ice caps under the northern lights. I used watercolors, chalk and pen. Really happy with the outcome and there will be more to come, my next, possibly a blue whale mermaid.
