"I trained at the West of England Academy (now theUWE) in the 50's.
I worked in ceramics for over 20yrs, before deciding in 1993 to paint fulltime.I wanted to say things that were not possilbe with the medium of clay.Growing up in the Wiltshire countryside, on the edge of Salisbury plain has given me a deep love of open wild sometimes solitary places, which has influenced my work.I use landscape as a reference point only, then start pushing the paint around and let things happen.
I have shown in numerous galleries throughout the country including :
Badcocks ,Newlyn-mixed shows , twoperson show
GoldfishG allery , Penzance -mixed and solo show
PenhavenGallery - twosolo shows ,mixed shows
PlumblineG allery-mixed shows
