I create my paintings by unpicking, editing and reassembling elements of landscape and place. I like to explore the boarder between realism and abstraction through layering, markmaking and colour. A level of abstraction allows the viewer to create their own interpretation of the image completing the creative process.
I studied Art and Design at High Wycombe College of Technology and Art and Hornsey College of Art in the 1970’s and currently teach in the Faculty of Creativity and Culture at Bucks New University. I am a member of The Drawing Research Network and the Oxford Art Society and 2007 won The Honorary Member’s Prize. My drawing, painting and sculpture have been exhibited throughout the UK and in the USA.
