About me

I have been painting for about 10 years; self taught and still learning. Before that I attended Essex University as a mature student between 1980-83 studying Art History & Theory. That wonderful time at the University of Essex gave me the opportunity to learn something about the ‘Story of Art’.

I have adopted many different painting styles. My eclectic nature allows me to pinch ideas from many artists. I use a wide range of media to express those ideas.  Because I am not a selling artist, my only pressure is self-satisfaction; my art is a serious pursuit. Although there is a fair bit of figurative work on my website, my direction would be towards abstraction if I were younger. I say this because it is a difficult path and takes time. I do hope you enjoy some of my paintings.
