I’m a painter who prints and I love working and collaborating with other artists. In recent years I’ve been learning stone lithography, having bought & restored an old Mailander direct press which I set up at the school where I work.
I create images through process – layering and erasing colour, making the most of chance and manipulating the surface. I’d describe my work as Punk Urban Neo Romanticism! I was lucky enough to be mentored by artists such as Bert Irvin and John Hoyland at the RA and I also hope to make paintings which are events to be felt through the senses, maybe with totemic power and infused by memory and experience.
