Concepts My interest is in expressing the beauty and mysterious qualities within landscape -colour, light and pattern. Expression is fairly loose and non literal, moving more towards abstraction. Influences Earliest-Samuel Palmer's sepia ink drawings; Nash, Lanyon, Hitchens - but for colour, Matisse and Bonnard and for colour and texture - John Walker. Influences also include being a former professional theatre designer. Career path Initial training in Fashion Design at Manchester Polytechnic (1968-72 Dip AD 2/1) included work placement at RSC and decision to pursue a career in Theatre Design (Bristol Old Vic Theatre School 1972-73).
