Qualified as a lawyer but began painting seriously about 18 years ago. I work in most media –sometimes all at once, which I love, using whatever processes or methods seem to suit the image in my mind’s eye, be it free and full of colour like Barbara Rae, or quiet and cool like Morandi. The effect of light on colour plus a strong form are always important to me whatever the catalyst, and I love to experiment with new methods and subject matter. Fascinated by Picasso’s cubism in my teens, his earlier works came as a revelation when I discovered them. I continue to discover artists who excite me – Cezanne, the Pointillistes, Uglow, Hockney, Freud, Diebenkorn and many, many others..
