Abstract combined with Surrealism
2020 at The Spanish Barn, Torre Abbey, Torquay,Devon. October.
As a painter, I would describe my style as basically abstract combined with surrealism.
My inspirations often are from folklore, historic places, legends and mythology. I use these subjects to weave an interesting narrative into my work.
Some of my life was spent living on Salisbury Plain, close to Stonehenge, this magical place was a generous source for legends and fantasy. Then some time in London gave me the opportunity to visit places like The Tower of London to enrich my stories with historic legends. Devon is also rich in folklore and offers another narrative, with legends to feed the imagination, King Arthur and the magical Glastonbury. Visiting castles gives my imagination new material to create new work.
Art has always been a passion for me and gaining a place at the Salisbury School of Art, was a big moment. I was given knowledge and guidance of excellent mentors who improved my confidence to try out different mediums. 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.
