25th May – 2nd June 2024 Creative Kernow

Dean Abstract Artist


I will be exhibiting my abstract paintings, influenced by my love of Cornwall. My paintings, giclée prints and merchandise will be for sale.

I am an abstract expressionist currently working in acrylics and alcohol inks. As an artist, my sense of colour and perspective have always been strong, painting how I feel in that moment and always immersing myself in music while I paint. I admire the work of many artists, from Picasso to Jackson Pollock and more recently, Bob Dylan.

I’m generally influenced by the colour and sound of my environment. In many ways, abstract expressionism is akin to poetry and should connect with the viewer on an emotional level. I often paint using only my hands and acknowledge that this allows an intimate, almost sensual bond between myself and the canvas. For me, every painting is born out of a catharsis. Working on some pieces has literally left me emotionally exhausted.

I have exhibited in Dublin, Belfast, York and now live and exhibit in Cornwall.

I will be available to discuss my work for the duration of the Open Studios event. There will be several paintings on display, which are all currently for sale, as well as giclée prints during the event itself.
