Each painting is created in multiple layers in mixed media on aluminium or canvas using raw pigments, adhesives, oil paints, UV paints, acrylics and precious metal leaf. This all combines to enhance the viewer’s experience. The pigments react under UV blacklight adding a further dimension to the painting. The skies in my landscape paintings conceal further secrets – revealed under UV, or in darkness. Sometimes this could be text, symbols or stars which phosphoresce and glow brightly. These features really bring the art to life in an engaging and meaningful way.
