I paint on canvas using oils and acrylics that have excellent permanency and lightfastness. My paintings are initially subject led; sometimes during the process of making, they may change into more abstracted hybrid work.
The formal issues of colour and composition are foremost in my thinking. Amongst my painting heros are John Hoyland, Matthew Smith, Gillian Ayers, Patrick Heron and Barbara Rae.
I completed my Masters in Fine Art in 2003 and have exhibitied extensively since:-
