Devils and Demons- Sculptures

For as long as I can remember I have been interested in pictures of devils and demons.  My earliest recollection is seeing a reproduction of the Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch in the 1970's Purnell encyclopedia. Since then I have tracked them down in churches, cathedrals, books and films.

The artwork for sale is a blend of sculpture and painting.  They are created using wall filler on canvas covered card. I then painstakingly build layers of acrylic and acrylic paint on top.

Each picture is unique and ready to be framed or mounted.

Mixed media on canvas card. 15x10cm. Available now at minigallery

New abstract texture paintings

 Moorland Study #2 - 20cm x20cm - Acrylic on canvas

I have recently started experimenting with more texture in my paintings, here are a few current examples. Its a multilayer process and texture covers painting which is then covered by texture etc until I am happy with the result. There is a freedom and spontaneity to this method which draws me away from the tyranny of making it look like something specific.
