With a focus on shape, rhythm & structure the paintings are usually developed from line drawings, though ideas can come from anywhere. Drawing in its different forms is important in learning to respond, select and 'design' – and this has led to a degree of semi-abstraction in the work. Graduated (with distinction) having specialised in painting..... typically creating anything from small oil sketches up to 6ft canvases; studied Environmental Design which involved creating large sale canvases for specific locations - the largest being 16ft long; I also hold a certificate to teach adults. Through a varied commercial career I worked as an illustrator and designer for two giftware companies, and a decorated tile manufacturer, and over many years designed and created artwork for a local advertising agency. In terms of portraiture, I have demonstrated many on-the-spot portraits at events, for countless satisfied customers. This was largely round the south of England and also in Australia. Conveying the individuality, expression & attitude in every face is always a fascination. Now based in Poole, Dorset, UK, the famous Jurassic Coast & Purbeck Hills are a short drive away; I work as a figurative artist running occasional art classes and am involved in organising other drawing and painting groups (these activities are currently suspended). Trustee for Poole & East Dorset Art Society and full exhibiting member of Bournemouth Arts Club
