Hello and welcome to my website. Thank you for dropping by. I hope that you find my paintings inspiring and thought provoking.
I consider myself to be an outsider artist as although my artistic education was in commercial illustration, after
twenty years I turned my back on this in order to pursue a purer and more individual vision. This path I have taken totally without others input. I felt that I had to unpick all that I had learned as an illustrator and start again from scratch. A blank canvas
again. This has been very necessary to my art process.
I do not feel that my painting style belongs to any specific genre. Some may see it as Abstract, others may feel it is Abstract Figurative, Primitive, Surrealist or Visionary. I try not to
label too much personally. All I know is that I try to start every piece of work with random shapes and marks...and then I try to work from there. I never know what is going to happen...each painting is a small adventure into the unknown. This makes them rather
dreamlike, perhaps bordering on childlike. I am happy with that. People see what they want to see, and everyone sees different things in one image.
The paintings appearing on this page will be my latest, with my most recent painting showing first
at the top of the page. In that way, this site acts as a creative blog also.
