I was feeling happy on the day this artwork was painted. I wanted to express that feeling in an upbeat painting. Using the colors of yellow and blue, I layed them and removed parts of each layer to reveal the color underneath.

The result reminded me of a spring "flower garden." The title was an easy one to pick. It has also been described as water lilies floating in a pool of blue water. Whatever the description, the result is one of elation and happiness.
About the artist:
I am originally from England, but moved to the USA at the age of 19. I attended university and obtained a degree in graphic design and fine art. Upon graduating I worked as a graphic designer and later an art director for 10 years. During this time I continued to build my portfolio of fine art.

I started out as an artist based in realism, concentrating primarily on animals. I continued to stay in realism when I quit the professional world to pursue a career in fine art. As time passed I continued to hone my craft, moving from realism, into more abstracted pieces.

My initial venture into abstracts was in the form of mixed media collages. I began to let go of my graphically precise nature of pen and ink, and painting into a looser form of creativity in my collages. I still continue to create collages today using a variety of mediums, papers and urban objects.

Finally I moved my focus to abstract paintings. I have progressed into a painter with two distinct styles. My main love affair is with fluid acrylic paint. The many uses of this medium and the uncertainty of what it can produce make it an exciting challenge to undertake. I have also begun to mix this medium with others, creating mixed media work with great success.

In summation, I would describe myself as an abstract artist, with interests also in realism and collage work. The emphasis being on my painting. I am energetic and prolific, and hope to convey this in the artwork I offer for sale.
