Profile

I work in most media across a wide range of subject areas, each theme being the springboard for ideas informed by the continuing process of the painting. The landscape of the Staffordshire Moorlands is a constant source of inspiration: the hilly market town of Leek with its outstanding architecture and, to the North, the rocky outcrop of the Roaches marking the start of the Pennines, offer variety and opportunity to explore different ways of interpretation. In much of my work, the prime concern is with colour shape and line, and the challenging and puzzling concepts of space and time on a two dimensional surface. These pre-occupations, together with the changing natures of the materials used, inspire experimentation where the subject matter becomes secondary to the ideas explored.
