“My pictures date from 1973, when I came down to London to receive psychotherapy. This carried on for many years. Psychotherapy provided the stimulus to my imagination and enabled me to illustrate my psychological problems in a light-hearted way.

About

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"
