‘“I do not seek. I find.” Picasso.
Travel is my greatest influence. Sultry, exotic cultures filled with noise, heat, laughter and flamboyant energy are my greatest sources of inspiration. Europe, (especially Andalusia), Morocco, Hong Kong, and Thailand have drawn me into their embrace.. ancient, modern, vibrant, passionate, sensual, eternal... Oils, acrylic and gold leaf form my work...... I visualise my experiences and create tangible memories.
I currently live in Cardiff and work both as an artist and as the head of an Art and Photography Department in a Newport Secondary school. Over the last 30 years I have travelled extensively and have been overwhelmed by the vivid colours and flamboyant forms found in diverse cultures, and which I aim to recreate in my work today.
