I am a painter, illustrator and educator, and I have exhibited in solo and group exhibitions both locally and nationally. I have also participated in the running with other artist in running an exhibition space and studios in the local community (Bracknell, Berkshire) in order to bring contemporary art tothe wider community.
In my work I explore human relationships, memories of childhood and social issues through the medium of paint and print. I work rapidly and instinctively and often decision making and critical analysis will be made before and after an intense period of mark making. Working in this way I feel that I am able to capture the energy of the subject and communicate deeply held emotional and personal issues.
The majority of my work is expressive and figurative, but I also have interests in the urban landscape and the effects of global recession on industry and communities. There is strong narrative feel to my work and man’s struggle against adversity is a common theme.
