Abstract combined with Surrealism

Spanish Barn, Torre Abbey, Torquay,Devon.& Artizan Galleries. Oct/Nov 2020

I would describe my style as basically abstract combined with surrealism.

Inspiration is often from folklore, historic places, legends or mythology. I use these to weave interesting narratives into my paintings.

For part of my life I lived on Salisbury Plain,quite close to Stonehenge, this magical place was a generous source for legends and fantasy. Then a move to London gave me the opportunity to visit some historical places, such as The Tower of London, These enriched my imagination for  more legends and stories. Devon and Cornwall are rich in folklore and offers a wealth of narrative, with legends to fire up the imagination. King Arthur and the magical Glastonbury. Castles, Islands and much more to work with.

Art is my passion, from student days at Salisbury School of Art, I soaked up knowledge and guidance from some excellent mentors who were truly inspiring. Oil painting has always been my favourite and the flemish technique.  I still use this in many of my works.

I have been creating art and exhibiting for many years, my work has been purchased by collectors internationally, including USA, Far East, Europe as well as many parts of the UK.  Currently I am honoured to be Chairman of Torbay Guild of Artists and proud to be involved helping to arrange exhibitions  and enriching our local culture.
