I am a British artist. I trained as a painter and print-maker at Camberwell College of Art in London. My recent work combines representations of the human figure with a high degree of abstraction.


My portfolios contain examples of work from the past four decades. These include paintings, drawings, fine art prints, collages, and digital art.

“Lone Star depicts events which occurred in Fort Worth and Dallas on November 22, 1963. It is one of a series of history paintings influenced by seismic events that have taken place during my lifetime. These incorporate images taken from the public domain as well as those I have developed from observation.”
