I have been painting murals since 1995 and love the challenge that each space creates. It fascinates me to walk into a room whether it’s in a private house, hotel or restaurant and see what could be there. I like to work in different environments as each place teaches me more about the world. Whether it is a mural in a Chinese restaurant, Egyptian hotel or Cornish maritime themed room, the research is always interesting.
Whatever the type of property, be it Georgian, Victorian, modern, or other, it is important to get the feel of a place and add to it rather than impose something that is simply not right. It is very important to me to paint something that the client loves, after all, it is there for them to live or work with. I paint patterns, people, tromp l’oeil and paint effects, just about anything really. At the moment I am very interested in Elizabethan tapestries, patterns and hand painted wallpaper/wall hangings.
