Biography


In my painting and drawing I seek to combine the physicality of what I see, with my own emotional response to the subject. I want my work to take me right back to a certain time and place, essentially capturing through paint a fleeting but significant experience of somewhere.

I am fascinated by the architecture and life of the city. The constantly changing light and shadow, the contrast of natural stone with neon lights. The reflection of lamps on the Thames at dusk. Empty barges on the river, disused warehouses and forgotten East End backstreets. From these quiet and contemplative parts of the city, to the bustling life and colour of Piccadilly or the skyscrapers of Manhattan. All these elements inform my painting and drive me on to find more ways to communicate what I see and feel in these wonderful environments.
