I interpret places and spaces, usually urban landscape, to compose images which often convey a sense of stillness and calm.

Their precise and structured appearance probably owes something to my background in graphic artist and IT technician roles, and I enjoy the process of working with grids and technical drawing instruments.

I produce the work by hand, only occasionally resorting to digital preparation for complex compositions.

Previously I've used pastels and conté crayon to a large extent, but in recent years my work has settled upon the atmospheric and tonal qualities of watercolour, played off against solid shapes and lines laid down with acrylic.

I've exhibited since the early 1980s, winning some awards along the way, and I've also worked in graphic artist, technical support and education roles. I was previously responsible for Multimedia and Fine Art related courses at Reading College and Thames Valley University, and also taught at the University of West London, and Regents University London.
