    Biography

     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. I paint things because I like them and use colour to recreate the form of the things I am looking at. 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.
