Matthew talks about his work, “I have always wanted to be an artist ever since I can remember, producing sketches and paintings from a young age all the way through education to university. I quickly singled out the medium of oil paints to produce work in as I was drawn to the vivid and strong colours only oils really can express.”

“Now, I feel I’ve developed ideas that I am very happy with and excited to show, using contrasting colours in my work though in ways that compliment one another to give a dynamic to each finished piece. A focus of loose painting alongside tight detail also gives the work that extra dimension I enjoy capturing.”
