“My work come from various origins - it identifies with memories of places & people. I have in the last 2-3 years found that simplifying my work is where I'm heading, constantly using a more simplified palette and working with shapes from nature. Getting to this point has taken many years of painting (I started painting with Oil when I was 13 yrs old). I have found that it is the knowledge I gained during the painting of all my previous work that will come though, with the addition of new ideas & incorporating these in my new work.
I work Abstract as well as Figuratively. My work can be found in private collections in the UK & abroad. I have lectured in Oil painting and Life drawing since 1998.
In 2016, 17 &18, I was pre-selcted for the NEAC & ROI (The Royal Institute of Oil Painters). I have a BA Painting & have trained with artists such as Francis Bowyer, PPres RWS, NEAC & Paul Newland NEAC.
