Artist, Teacher

Concepts I am very interested in how we see things and relate them to their surroundings. I continue to develop thoughts and ideas around perception using a small number of objects in the intimate space of the still-life table. The compositional elements of colour, line and shape create the space in the pictures. How the objects stand in their space, how one affects another is all important in the painting, as is the visual journey across the space between them, and their relationship to the viewer. Close observation gives the individual objects weight and substance. Looking and seeing is fundamental. Influences Cezanne, Giacometti, Chardin , Morandi, William Scott Career path After leaving Camberwell School of Art with a BA in Fine Art I have pursued a career as an artist. Since 1989 I have shown regularly both here and abroad and have work in many private collections. read full statement
