I am trained in fine art, history of art and theology. My artwork is formed from fragments of ready made materials rearranging and regrouping forms to give new meaning in a display of pictorial archaeology. Recently I have been using boards and paint to simplify images by concentrating on developing the inner space of the picture. Also using the surface of the paint to absorb and reflect the changing light and mood at different times of the day.
Next Exhibition Exposition 75:A Journey through Art The Old Fire Station Gallery Henley on Thames Thursday 4 July - Tuesday 9 July 2019.
