Colourful abstract paintings with mixed media on canvas and small paintings on paper.

I trained in Art and Design in the 60s, attending Sheffield, Liverpool and Leeds Art Colleges. I taught Art for 20+ years.

Colour is the overriding influence in my work. I start with a wide brush mark on a blank surface and the choice of colour is lifted from a mood or from landscape sketches. From this initial brush stroke the painting develops. Then I might use collage or apply more colour – adding or removing as I go. Each piece has its own momentum and I spend time reflecting at each stage.

Currently my work has become more abstracted.


My studio was built in my garden (instead of) in 2019. It is a small building which houses my materials and easel and I go in there most days to work on paintings. I always have at least 2 pieces on the go at the same time. It is a small space so I tend to let people look through my work independently if they want to buy anything.

My work has become more abstract since lockdown. I work in acrylics on canvas and paper and tend to work on several paintings at once: usually one large canvas and 2 or 3 small paintings on paper. Colour is crucial to my paintings.
