Night Out After Work
I moved to Cheltenham to study art at Cheltenham & Gloucester Art and Design School and graduated in 1979 with a Degree in Fine Art & Art History.
I paint mainly in oils and my work captures slices of everyday life, using colour and form to create atmosphere, movement, and tension. I use instinctive brush strokes, spontaneity, intuitive mark making and use of bold colours to create a unique narrative in each piece of work.
Recent shows have included people on the underground titled ‘Mask before Masks’ which captured life before lockdown when we wore a different type of mask. Last year I explored the world of horse racing through the people that attend the meetings, their relationships with other race goers and the space around them.
I am currently working on a series of paintings related to the experience of working backstage in Theatre, which I look forward to exhibiting at Sixteen Gallery during the Jazz Festival in May next year.
