I am a British Artist but have lived and worked in Dubai for the last 20 years. I started playing around with a concept I describe as ‘cellular’ art about a decade ago but then life, travel, and work distracted me from experimenting with this concept further. In 2015, by chance I found my thoughts returning to the concept of cellular art. I am now prolifically creating images in this style and currently working daily to build my portfolio. Each painting, for me, is a personal challenge. A draining endeavour which can take two months to complete. Some paintings have more than 40,000 cells of Individually mixed portions of acrylic paint. Each cell of colour is placed with a brush one spot at a time. I can think of few things more satisfying than to slowly coax my subject to life and witness its birth. It truly feels like I leave a little bit of my soul embedded within each of my creations. I have a large and growing fan base on social media whose positive feedback and encouragement fuels my inspiration. My Style: I like to play around with the idea that there is order within chaos! I have always been fascinated by the way our brains perceive the world around us. Everything we see is represented by countless miniscule cells of colour. The closer we view these cells the more random they appear. Then when we pull away the brain stitches these cells together to generate an image. It is this phenomenon that I use to create my paintings. I design my paintings to work on two levels. Firstly as an abstract. A myriad of coloured dots that only hint at the subject that they are trying to portray. Then, secondly, a detailed image that reveals its self with startling clarity as we pull away. Give my art a little space and stand back and let it breath.
