A lot of my work is autobiographical, either directly or indirectly.
It is frequently very personal, and expresses events or circumstances or experiences in my life.
I work in a variety of mediums, including Acrylic on Canvas, Crayon, Pastel, Pencil, Ink, and Watercolour. I also make Sculpture in Ceramic and Stone.
In all my works of art, whatever they are made from, the critical elements are craftsmanship, content and meaning.
To myself thought and ideas are paramount in the creative process.
This website is designed to project and bring my Artworks to a wider audience.
I am always happy to hear of exhibition opportunities and proposals, and from commercial galleries.
Most of the artworks are for sale, and I am always prepared to carry out commissions to meet a client's specific requirements.
