Art has been the main focus in my life as long as I can remember.
I regard myself as self-taught, but have
studied anatomy and figure drawing at various stages in my career.
This has help me gain a more in depth
understanding of figurative abstracts and the rhythms of the male and female form.
The language of the body a universality, the interaction,the line,a truth.
Most of the work I do now is to do with the juxtaposition of colour,
form and shape.
I believe painting has to have it’s own presence, people react to painting in a multitude intangible ways. Paintings are simultaneously graphic
and emotive, but above all to be enjoyed.
