Currently ‘up the wall’ painting murals – a surprising twist to my career.
Having trained in Fine Art at Southampton and Exeter Colleges of Art, I moved to Romney Marsh in 1975 eventually giving up the day job as an art tutor in 2008 to become a proper artist.
Working in 2D media, images evolve through observation of places and things around me – passing through memory and imagination to be retold in a new way. My style has been described as ‘illustrative’, ‘like a stained glass window’, and even ‘a bit scary’.
Here’s the twist. First asked to design and paint a mural in 2011, I have since worked on private commissions and outside, in public, on several prestigious projects including ‘Sunflower House’ and ‘The Wooded Valley’ in Folkestone for the Bradstone Association and three large murals in New Romney, for the IMOS Foundation.
So it’s onwards and upwards. New commissions welcomed.
