      Biography

      Currently artist in residence at Deanland Airfield East Sussex, working on images reflecting the conflict archeology of WW2. I get to know my subject matter through sketching in charcoal and then try and paint as instinctively as possible to achieve a result that captures energy and emotion. I like the working process to be visible in the finished object and I hope the paintings are an antidote to the screensaver-style images that surround us. Represented by Gallery 35 North, Brighton, UK.
