Location: United Kingdom
I attended Stockport College of Art & commenced to work in an Advertising Agency following which I began my career as a freelance Illustrator with a top London Agent. During this time I built up a formidable reputation as a figurative & fashion Artist working for high profile clients in England & Europe.
Having travelled widely in the course of my career I lived & worked in Spain, Paris, Los Angeles & Ireland. In Ireland I travelled with my dog to many parts, enjoyng my passions for painting, music,& Hurling.
Whilst in Ireland I was honoured to be chosen to design 6 stamps, winning a European award for these.
I now live in Pembrokeshire, Wales, following my hobbies of Ancient History, Antiques, Gardening & Photography.
Oil paint is my chosen medium with which I aim to capture essential relationships of light & shadow, with harmonious colour & composition.
Galleries to view-----Abstract, Still Life, Figurative, Venice, Travels, Equine, Marine, mainly oil on canvas.
My loves throughout my life have always been Art & Music & subsequently the two live together in the formation of my work. They are part of each other for me. When I am working there is always musical inspiration, Beethoven to Blues, Mozart to Jarrett.
My distinctive style has a thematic feeling of drama & mystery that appeals to questions of who & where we are. I wish to show an awareness of this mortal coil, our presence in the wondrous formation.
Paintings, I believe work on two levels, firstly controlled compositions with strong tones, secondly, I hope they can carry a journey of thought & beauty, in which the viewer can share my inner wonderment.
