Born & brought up in Southampton, I now live in Romsey. Having attended Hampton Park Secondary school, I went on to study art & design at Southampton college of Art where I gained a travelling scholarship and a Diploma in Art and Design with honours.
In the late sixties I moved to London to work as a graphic designer. where I worked for several top design consultants, specialising in corporate identity design, design for print and packaging design.
Since finishing work I have rekindled my interest in painting and drawing; working on a wide variety of subject matter in oil, acrylic, watercolour and mixed media.
I also love life drawing.
Since joining New Road Artists I am enjoying a more abstract and experimental approach to my work.
I particularly like the work of Ivan Hitchens, Barbara Rae and more recently Gerhard Richter who is influencing my current work, in which I am striving to leave the viewer the compelling thought of ‘What lies beneath?’
I have been exhibiting and selling my work for the last ten years.
