After studying at South London Technical College and Camden School of Art I developed a passion for abstract art having been influenced by Picasso, Braque and Kandinsky.
My style began to change after moving to East Sussex and gradually became less abstract and more realistic, although hints of abstract remain. I wanted to capture the beauty of the South Coast and Weald so I began painting landscapes with watercolour which is a medium I enjoy using but not in the traditional way.
I am an experimental painter often applying paint straight from the tube, building up layers, and then scraping through with a palette knife. The changing light and drama of the surrounding countryside is a regular theme in my paintings which I like to describe as "organic" in that they evolve naturally and find their own direction. I am particularly fond of farm buildings and lighthouses which also feature regularly in my work.
My paintings are now in private collections throughout Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the USA and are shown in several galleries in Sussex and Kent. I have also exhibited in London at the Mall Galleries, The Affordable Art Fair and Bankside Gallery where I was awarded a prize at the Royal Watercolour Society's Open Exhibition.
I am a member of the long established Rye Society of Artists which holds its annual exhibition in August.
