Biography

I create bold striking contemporary watercolours of birds, landscapes and animals that attract the viewer’s attention. I strive not to replicate an exact copy of my chosen subject but rather to give my impression of it, leaving areas unfinished for the viewer’s eye to complete the painting.

As a trained illustrator and graphic designer I love the way that working with watercolour, wet on wet, allows me to “let go” and enjoy the fantastic mistakes that happen along the way to create the finished piece.

I paint in my studio in Lindfield, a beautiful village in West Sussex. I have completed numerous commissions nationwide from a robin to celebrate a 70th, a christening duck, and pink flamingoes to brighten up a Lake District sitting-room.

My paintings are watercolour on beautiful 600gsm thick paper and range from £150 to £550. If you're interested in any of my paintings please get in touch and I’ll happily arrange for you to see the piece or send you more details and photos. Alternatively if would like to commission a piece of art I'd love to hear from you...

I also have an online shop where you can purchase prints and cards of my artwork. https://www.moirdesigns.co.uk/
