I am an artist based in Lavant, near Chichester, in West Sussex, England. Until recently I lived in Glasgow, where I was based for over 20 years, my realistic style developing within the flourishing figurative art scene in Scotland.
On this website you can find out a bit more about me, browse through a selection of my figurative oil paintings, and read some of my thoughts about my work.
Figurative oil paintings
One of the principle themes of my figurative paintings is our relationship with the past.
Many of my works combine elements from traditional paintings and sculptures with contemporary figures, man-made artifacts, and content from the natural world. The result is a dreamlike synthesis that forms a commentary (sometimes ironic or humorous) on our own time.
Living in the countryside of the South Downs has revived my interest in landscape painting.
