Most of my pictures are the product of my imagination and many were started during my course at City Lit so I would like to thank Clare Barton Harvey, Amanda Knight and Luke Jones in particular and all my tutors at City Lit for their support and advice.
My influences are many – from the art of the Northern Renaissance to the early work of David Hockney, I am aware that when exploring images for my pictures my mind has a tendency to choose Christian themes, reflecting my religious upbringing.
The pictures are about narrative, time and place and illustration rather than abstraction and ideas.
I am not consciously exploring any grand themes here, rather just developing my craft as a painter, however it is difficult to put into words ideas that seem to flow naturally in paint.
I hope you all enjoy the exhibition"
