In general, I’m an abstract painter allowing the figurative narrative to take prominence at present. My painting is about finding the right way for me to convey the narrative of a subject, this, of course, is not always in the same way. I work with the subject developing the ideas that each painting throws-up and this eventually suggests the next direction.
After college (Chelsea School of Art) I carried on painting in a studio rented through the ‘Space’ initiative for a couple of years. Then in order to reliably finance my painting, I joined a business venture with my brother where I was able to commit one day a week to my painting. I ended up there longer than intended but, in 2008, we sold the business and I was able to paint full time again. My studio is a converted tractor shed on our smallholding just outside London.
