Scene of the crime has a hidden secret.

When the lights go out spatters eminate a blue glow.

The photo luminescent crystals that were added to the base coat absorb UV light and after dark they release energy in the form of a long lasting ambient glow.

An original action art painting (but in my own style without so much emphasis on the "action") that involves the deliberate application of considered sweeping brushstrokes and the wonderful accidental effects that occur from the gradual build up of dripping and pouring paint onto the canvas.

A simple abstract black, white, silver and gold painting. This can be hung without a frame for a contemporary look.

I like getting involved in the very essence of these paintings. Each colour and stroke is done in a considered thoughtful way and the paintings are built up of many layers of paint and colours.

The larger paintings have to be laid on the floor which means you have to walk around the painting making choices on where and how to lay the paint down. Some layers are worked wet paint into wet paint while other layers are allowed to dry fully before the next colour is added.

The final outcome can never be totally controlled which means each piece is totally unique.
