After completing my undergraduate Degree in the UK I received my Master Of Fine Arts Degree from The School Of The Art Institute Of Chicago in 1992. Since then I have been practising as a professional artist. I now work from my purpose built studio in Derbyshire. My Work has been exhibited exstensively throughout the UK, Europe and USA and I have exhibited at all major British Art Fairs. My work is derived from and inspired by sight, sound and emotion from the real world and my belief that painting is a timeless, emotive and transcendental means of expression. I believe the process of painting is integral to its content and the quality of foremost importance. To flick, smudge, pour, spray, spread, rub, splat, squeeze, draw, scribble and dribble in order to create tough, uncompromising paintings which carry the weight of art history and relate to people on many levels. I hope my painting will keep evolving. Exactly where it is hard to say because so much comes from within the painting. Perhaps I will see something or some accident happen which will send me in a new direction.
