This site shows samples from the work I have been doing over many years. I do not attach much importance to dates as themes come and go, all of them evolve and inform each other.The main starting points have been based on studies of rocks and water done in sketchbooks on the Cornish coast. My other exploration over the years has been a more abstract one. The infinite possibilities offered by a blank sheet where one is not thinking of an outside starting subject provides a balance for me that runs parallel to the rockpool work.Both approaches are primarily about the act of painting and it is this journey that is important to me.
Works are on paper and canvas usng oil paint and acrylic. Drawings are charcoal and chinese ink.
