These three galleries show samples of my work over the last twenty odd years. I studied at the Slade in the sixties but it is only in more recent times that I have painted regularly. I have taken photographs throughout my life and after starting to use digital cameras began exhibiting some alongside my paintings. Many of the photographs in Gallery 3 have been included in a book.
Painting remains my primary interest. The painting process and the physical presence of the final work are its attraction. Photographs are often used as source material but a painting develops a life of its own as the image is created in paint.
The end result is usually very different from the source.
All paintings are oil on canvas unless otherwise stated. A selection of paintings is always available to view in my studio.
