I am primarily a painter but also work in mixed media, photography and computer graphics.

I have explored just about every avenue of two dimensional visual art over a period of thirty five years. The biggest change in my work has been a shift from figurative to abstract. Like most I started out producing representational work but my current output is completely abstract. For most of my career I produced work that was largely abstract but with obvious references to the objective world. It is only over the last couple of years that I’ve had the confidence in my work not to feel the need to reference reality. This was incredibly liberating and the work on display here is a reflection of my new found artistic freedom.

I have had solo shows and group shows in both the UK and the US and am a published photography writer. I have taught art on three continents and also been involved with various art based community projects. I also owned a gallery that highlighted the work of both established and emerging artists for three years.
