Paintings on FABRIC

Many people don’t quite realise the way fabric is integrated into my paintings. For many, it seems the layers and textures are achieved simply through paint. 

Each one of my paintings starts its life as a piece of fabric. The fabric is stretched tightly around a wooden frame and finished with a specialist clear primer that keeps the surface taught. I then start the painting process, ensuring I leave parts of the fabric visible through the layers of oil paint. This combination creates a beautifully dynamic surface texture, whilst also adding to the story of the painting.

Here’s a sneak peak of my latest paintings on WAXED COTTON!!! The paintings will be created as part of a big project in partnership with Halley
Stevensons, Dundee.
