Abstract land and seascapes inspired by the coastlines of Devon and Cornwall

Artistic background

I am driven to create art by a keen desire to outwardly express my inner self and imagination through the use of colour and composition. Without doubt I have found that abstract painting is the form of artistic expression that gives the greatest freedom and inspiration.

I was born in Oslo, Norway and for the first few years of my life I lived in Sandvika on the southern coast before coming to the UK in 1985. Then for much of my life I lived in Devon before settling with my family in Cornwall. I have always felt fortunate to live near the sea, and it has further inspired me to explore and create.

In my early life I had wanted to pursue art, but unfortunately this was not encouraged when I was considering further study, and I was pushed towards what was deemed a more academic direction. But the desire to paint never left me, and I am now fulfilled and happy to say that I have become self-taught as an artist over the last 4 years. I have also been greatly supported and encouraged by my wife Megan who herself is an artist, having studied fine art and print-making.

I do prefer to paint with oils due to its texture and richness of colour. I tend to paint in portrait orientation, and I produce medium to large size paintings. I always do my best to select quality materials and paints, and I prefer to paint on deep edge canvases.

In particular I am interested in creating art that leaves a thoughtful impact and sense of feeling, simply by the use of evocative colour and imaginative, abstract composition. To date I have exhibited my artwork in local galleries, both in Devon and Cornwall.

I look forward to selling my artwork on Artgallery.co.uk as it is respected and well-established. I am confident that Artgallery.co.uk provides the ideal platform to reach those who would appreciate my artwork.

Thank you, regards Thomas
