I am an elected member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists. My work is held in public and private collections in the UK and EU.
I am an abstract painter. In my work I eschew those discernible elements or forms in which the viewer could readily find their counterparts within the world around us. I am not an artist whose work is totally non-referential. The titles of my paintings are always based on single words or short phrases that relate to external stimuli or particular phenomena that can be directly connected to our lived experiences. My aim is to produce work that creates its own credible abstract reality.
My most recent paintings are the Harlequin series, some of which appear on this page. These arose from a chance encounter with a butterfly during lockdown.
Colour is fundamentally important to me both in the construction of each painting and in the way that the elements within the work are differentiated, while at the same time its usage enables me to create a connecting narrative across each painting in the series.
