After leaving college, I like many artists had to work in other trades to supplement my desire to create. However I was very fortunate, at twenty five I got a position of artist within a studio in the UK.

Assorted jobs followed whilst successfully selling paintings and producing public artwork (paintings and mosaics). There was also a time as artist in residence. Interestingly the range of jobs I have had has kept me grounded, broadened my experience of life and added to my creativity.

A question I've often been asked is; 'How long did it take you to paint it?'. My answer invariably is 'Some hours sketching and observing, time thinking about it, more hours to do the actual painting and forty years of experience'. Experience is the bit you can't quantify - its experience that enables me to take things out in order to simplify and to create marks that are beautiful in themselves.
