Welcome to my blog


A journal of the ongoing exploration of painting. Continually trying to push the boundaries of my art practice.  The challenge is to reach the image in my head. Drawing is always my default starting point and then the materiality of the paint takes over to breathe life into the result.

Looking forward to 2019

The first deadline has already been set.....an exhibition at The Minories in Colchester on March 1st.

I've started making new work for this as it will be an exciting new place to show my work. The Minories is a long established gallery opposite Firstsite so a good chance to visit both.

Following on after the construction of the revolutionary architecture of Firstsite, this whole area of Colchester is undergoing a facelift and gradually becoming an much more inviting place to visit with new restaurants springing up.

My second deadline will be self-imposed. I hope to offer a few workshops now that my studio space has increased. It will be so much more comfortable to be able to plan these at home rather than having to transport materials to another site. So I think thes will be more enjoyable and useful. If you are interested and have any special requests for topics you'd like covered, please email me.

I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year.
