studio 1.2

About

I only took up being a full time artist 5 years ago, as a result of adding pictures on social media to show friends and family what I was doing to cover some very blank walls in my house. I was encouraged to carry on, and like all artists I have seen my style evolve over the years.

I find my inspiration all around me, and will introduce very high contrasts and bright colours whenever I can, as this is what works for me. The intricate detailed ironwork balcony or doorway, to a pier and beach, or a coastal landscape are all so inspiring to me. I also love plants, from the foxgloves in my garden to a field full of sunflowers. This wouldn’t be complete without the sometimes quirky subjects like a box of clementines or a bowl of cherries, which are also great fun to do.

I look forward to welcoming you to my studio or at an event near you.

I am also happy to discuss any commissions.

Testimonials

First commission, I love designing all the ironworks.

The Zaza Room as it is now called.

At the top of the stairs, someone thinks it’s the perfect fit.

“…My wife has brought the picture we purchased home and it’s wonderful. I’m very happy with it and we’re thinking hard about where to hang it “

Dear Zaza I am pleased to report that your lovely picture has been installed in our new room this evening…You can see that the wall was built specially to take the fire and the picture. Best wishes for your continued success
