I have always had a passion for art, drawing and painting from an early age and have maintained this interest throughout my working life. I am a member of the Attic Art Society and have exhibited at Brighton Art Gallery, The Oxmarket Chichester, Worthing Museum and the Grange Rottingdean.
In my early fifties I embarked on a foundation course in art & design at Brighton and this was to have a profound effect on my style of working. I think my work has evolved both technically and spiritually and is a natural consequence of doing something I love. Whatever the subject matter happens to be I am always searching for new concepts and seek a balance between the figurative and the abstract.
One other aspect of my work involves the subject of figure study which I have enjoyed for many years. This, I have found pushes ones drawing and painting skills to the absolute limit, encompassing perspective, tonal range, proportion and composition. The human form presents the ultimate challenge and for me depicting the nude form has always held a particular fascination and I am rewarded with an infinite source of inspiration.
With subject matter in mind I am constantly seeking out new ideas with the ultimate aim of creating a heightened and more expressive visual language.
