February 2020 Vision of Art Exhibition, at Spanish Barn, Torre Abbey, Torquay,Devon.
I think of myself as a painter, combining abstraction, surrealism with a dash of impressionism.
Subjects for inspiration are often taken from folklore, historic places, legends and mythology, all with a helping of fantasy.
Some of my early years were spent living on Salisbury Plain, close to Stonehenge, this magical place offered a generous source for legends and fantasy. After a move to London, I found many historical places, like the Tower of London. Then a move to Devon offered many stories to feed the imagination, such as the King Arthur legend and of course, magical Glastonbury. I visit many castles in the UK to gain narrative to create new pieces.
Love of art began at school in Wiltshire, gaining a place at the Salisbury School of Art,to study fine arts was a big moment for me. At art school I gained confidence and the knowledge to explore different medias with the guidance of excellent mentors who improved my love of painting and in particular the use of oils with the Flemish technique, which I still use in many of my works.
I have been involved with Art for many years, exhibiting and selling, My work has found homes Internationally, including USA, Far East, Europe and UK. Currently I am Chair of Torbay Guild of Artists.
