I make art to celebrate what seems beautiful, reflect on things that are painful, and generally understand the world around me.
My art is often figurative. It often involves drawing and painting. But I also make physical objects with an expressionistic quality, and I have a lifelong fascination with folding paper, and making books.
Mostly drawn from observation
Where does inspiration come from?
Mostly I use oil. In a hurry, acrylic
…and life painting
When I became ill, I drew
Works made with needles
Cups, jugs, teapots and more
Novels, poetry, biography – all kinds of books I like
Rapid portraits, on Zoom
Saying goodbye to my friend
It’s restful to draw my surroundings
Painted, drawn or stuck in a book
…of other people
Portraits of a parish
Places people gather, inside and out
I never lack for a model
