Visionary artists inspire us all to look beyond the veil of cultural and linguistic limitations. Human consciousness is evolving; the artificial boundaries between art and science are rapidly being erased. Using the imagination, and tapping into mystical, magical themes, the Visionary Artist transcends this physical world, opening a doorway into other realms we all recognize.
I was greatly influenced by Salvador Dali, and Roger Dean in the late 60’s and 70’s, and enjoyed Art at school. I went on to paint for pleasure and would paint friends pets if they asked me. In the late 80's I married, and had two children, but sadly my eldest became seriously ill with Leukaemia at the age of 4. Life changed for us as a family, and much of her childhood was spent in and out of hospital, however, I returned to painting as a form of 'therapy'. I eventually began to take commissions, and was given one from Bernie Marsden, who used to play guitar for Whitesnake. I joined a number of Art Societies locally, but always enjoyed painting Fantasy and the Surreal.
I joined the Society for Art of the Imagination, and was privileged enough to be chosen to exhibit with this Society at H.R. Giger’s Museum, in Gruyere, Switzerland in 2007. I exhibited with them at the Mall Gallery, London, where I secured a large commission to paint ‘Go through the Gate’ . That painting was 8ft x 5ft in oil and took 7 months to complete, the clients vision of the Soul's Journey.
Founder of that Society is Brigid Marlin, who I have been lucky enough to receive tuition from, and have recently exhibited with a number of Honorary Patrons in Montreal:
- H.R. Giger
- Alex Grey
- Andrew Gonzalez
- Martina Hoffmann
- Lukas Kandl
- Laurie Lipton
- Sheila Marlin
- Michael Parkes
- Otto Rapp
- Michel de Saint Ouen
