Oxford educated, I worked as a book illustrator for many years before returning to painting.
My work is created by the liberal application and removal of paint in horizontal and vertical planes. Each successive stroke draws a veil across the previous layer of paint like a curtain, playing with the notion of presence and absence. I delight in the pure randomness produced by the effects of repeated application of paint.
I begin with an idea of the look and feel of the finished canvas; however this can change with each application of paint. I can consider the painting finished at any point in this process as I instinctively know when I have achieved the look and mood I want.
Each canvas is my work from start to finish; from assembling the frame to the careful packaging of the completed work. I am happy to personally deliver any painting purchased for installation in the UK.
I am excited to currently be in discussion with The Gallery, Yr Oriel, Newport, Pembrokeshire, Wales to produce an exclusive collection of paintings for them.
My paintings can be purchased via the following websites: saatchiart.com, artfinder.com, art2arts.co.uk or directly from myself.
Private viewing can be arranged by contacting me (see contact details above).
