BIO

My work has evolved from early art college figurative painting through abstraction in the seventies and, from the late seventies, back to the figurative.

Abstract/non objective painting taught me much about space and shape and the delicate balance between them. Hopefully my painting still retains the stillness that comes from that balance.

I combine ordinary people with ordinary and imaginary scapes to create work which I hope makes the viewer think and dream.

For me each work has specific and vague meanings which arise from its conception and the process of its making.

The title I give to each painting can help point the viewer in at least one direction but should not always be taken too literally.

I consider myself to be a 'symbolist' in that the figures and objects portrayed often have more than one significance.

Always I hope that my work pleases the eye but also stimulates the mind.
