  • Biography
    When I was at art school in the 1970's I was told by a lot of people that painting was dead, it's all been done before. Well, here I am in the twenty-first century,  along with a lot of other artists, still happily painting away.
    What I do with my style of painting is mix things up a bit, I mix native art with 1940's abstract art, add a touch of Picasso, a bit of cubism and sometimes throw in a bit of Kandinski or maybe a bit of pop art.
    What I hope to achieve with my work is to stimulate that part of the brain that creates emotion like what you feel when you listen to a piece of music only using your eyes and not your ears. There are so many ways to look at art, you can see it just as something that is pleasing on the eye or it might just be something that would go well with your soft furnishings at home. The other side of the coin is what gets me going and that is studying the language of art, the relationships between colour and shapes, not only trying to create beauty but also trying to create a mood a feeling or it maybe something that triggers a thought in the viewer's mind that sends them off on their own thought patterns. Like I said earlier the way we listen to music is the same as the way we look at art.
