I make and exhibit painting, public art, sculpture and assemblages. My art invites revealing traits of psychological and philosophical significance, reflected and brought back to realisation and imaginative insight, in the language of colour, light, space and shape.
Born in Surrey, discovering art & craft in father's workshop and from local artists, "I started a civil engineering degree at Coventry University, but the brilliant art library and conversation and friendships with art students pulled me back to painting. ten years on lecturers and close friends helped develop my art and painting and I went on to making drawings for sculpture, and looking to the history of art. By 2000 I was making art in the community, tutoring and devising workshops, alongside making my own painting and sculpture."
Inspired by abstract art, philosophical enquiry and the existential, making questioning art, often coming from the unusual poetic resonances found in events and objects of day to day living. Relating to identity, people & place - & beyond to boundaries of the mind & heart, by colour, light and meaning: Affinities with art relating to a super consciousness of time space & energy signing the eternal.
I create public artworks, community & corporate art. Residencies in sculpture or painting.Exhibitions, murals. Workshops including photography and digital media
