Since the day I graduated (in Fine Art) from St Martin’s School of Art in 1971 I have worked full-time as an artist. Over that time I have made work in a variety of mediums (paintings, drawings, constructions, original prints).

My paintings and drawings are generally ‘to do’ with people - often where people are dealing with situations they find themselves in. I do depict subjects other than people and these are likely to be aspects of nature – as metaphors for human activities (my lithographs), or else nature profoundly affected by man (‘Clearing’).

I like the suggestion of a narrative in a painting . . . but I also like ambiguity. I wouldn’t want a definitive interpretation. I want the imagination to be fired. The word ‘clearing’ could refer to an open space within a forest, or to the physical act of clearing away, but also to the possibility of perceiving things more clearly – seeing things anew through changes in . . understanding, or memory, or just the weather.
