After a creative career in television as a graphic designer, illustrator and animator,
I now paint full time from my studio on the Isle of Wight.
My work as figurative - taking inspiration from people on the streets, isolating characters and changing relationships. If there is a theme it would be people together.
The life drawing and the oil painting are separated in the gallery as the two styles look so different.
The oil painting is controlled and planned. The narrative between the figures is important . The paintings are in themes like the Greek myths reinterpreted and the Gallery paintings. The oil painting connects with the many sketchbook studies I did when working central London. Sketching people in the street and in public spaces in small pocket sketchbooks and long concertina sketchbooks. There is a subsection of these drawings.
The life drawing is all about practice and technique. My style is bold and fast. I draw standing at the easel. It's all about mixing media and experiment.
