I was born and educated in Liverpool, where I trained at the College of Art, specialising in interior and spatial design in the early 60s, a lively and colourful time to be there.
I worked in this discipline for over 30 years, specialising in hotel, restaurants and pubs, occasionally also the living quarters for supertankers and oil rigs.
Moving to Herefordshire in 1974 I fell in love with the beautiful border countryside. Whilst I taught part-time at Hereford College of Art, I travelled extensively, mainly for work. I loved the serendipity of chance in these travels and the images they offered me. Perhaps inevitably, the ambiguity of spatial illusions fascinates me, together with a love of the effects of light and shade and colour. I try to create reactive rather than organised images, guided as much by the materials I use as the emotions I feel.
I find acrylic suits my working methods and the occasional addition of graphite, pastel or oil pastels give added textual qualities. I continue to experiment.
I have work in private collections throughout the UK and in California, USA.
