Portrait Pieces:
Wayne’s love of the stark contrast between light and dark is what inspires him to create these stunning acrylic on canvas pieces.

It is his desire is to create a serene atmosphere that lets the viewer luxuriate in the detail as he captures the life, breath and movement of the subjects, that then combines to create moody yet elegant celebrations of the female form.

Resin Pieces:
Wayne’s objective is to create truly unique one-off pieces of art that are utterly magical and otherworldly in appearance.

He combines Epoxy Resin with Acrylic Paints, Pigment Powders, Makeup, Inks, Tattoo Inks and some secret ingredients to create truly sensational effects. Once mixed, the pouring fun and magic of Liquid Art begins!

Once poured Wayne controls the resin using a number of different heating techniques and allows it to flow freely until he creates a unique and exquisite piece of original artwork. Each breath taking piece is produced to an exceptional quality with a superb glass like finish that has to be seen to be believed, photographs truly do not do them justice. For a talked about centrepiece to any room these works of art are abstract expressionism at its best and at times are intense, spontaneous and without doubt deeply expressive.
