My work is very eclectic and has a myriad of influences ranging from ethnic cultures and classicism to modernism and contemporary art. It is not confined to abstract work, though this admittedly forms the majority of my output in recent years.

My paintings are very difficult to pigeon-hole, (much to the critics chagrin) as I move easily from semi representational pieces with a strong illustrative content to totally abstract works.

Though I have been interested and actively engaged in producing mixed media work for decades, recent work has a distinctly collage feel, with the regular inclusion of textural substrates on stretched canvas.

I am influenced by places; people and events encountered in my personal life and try to capture the essence of an experience. A concept, idea or feeling may be triggered by a chance remark, poetic phrase or piece of music as readily as by some directly observed scene.

In all my pieces I attempt to respect the integrity of the materials and surface quality which gives the work its depth and character.

I also work in gouache and watercolour on more intricate pieces (sometimes in miniature) using fine line and frequent layering of colour. I can equally happily work on quite playful assemblages as illustrations of ancient tales.

Pattern and colour fascinate me and I readily embrace them in my work, frequently using them to establish a starting point on which I then elaborate.

Collectors have often said of my work that it needs to be lived with, and that different nuances and interpretations reveal themselves over time.
