A self taught artist, I have dabbled in art since before I was at school.
I would describe my art as abstract and personal, with my main media being acrylic and ink.
Having had a long and varied career path, from barber to social worker, from clothing designer to business owner, this allows me to tap into a diversity of inspiration, experiences and memories, both bad and good.
I have very rarely let anyone see my work but the combination of retiring 2 years ago, quickly followed by the pandemic has given me time to find that I am open to criticism of my art. In fact, I now find it refreshes my thinking and challenges me to do better on every piece.
While I am my own worst critic, sometimes painting over original works I haven’t liked.
Now 70, I believe I have enjoyed art and artists work from all over the world, and I want to continue to learn and challenge myself in getting better.
My emotional involvement with art is one that keeps me coming back time and again to try and create something new and meaningful.
