Painting, drawing, printmaking and photography-based images. My work explores sea and landscapes, the human form and historical research and references

I am a Sheffield based artist working primarily with landscape/seascape and the human form. My main methods of practice are painting, drawing and photographic images.

The work has a strong sense of marks and lines from the instinctive to the deliberate, often incorporating lines of text. It also makes direct reference to the materials being used.

Drawing is an essential part of my practice, charcoal an important medium and life drawing a discipline. I started life drawing in 1980 with John Epstein in London and continue to explore the instinctive approach he provoked.

I am interested in the historic significance of places and events. How the past is recorded and represented to determine how we understand it. How are facts constructed?

In conclusion, my work is figurative in its inspiration and I seek to make pieces that are visually strong, aesthetic in quality and continue to affect the viewer.
