I am a self taught mainly figurative painter and paint in acrylic and oils on canvas or board. Although I have not painted for the last fifteen years due to life getting in the way and circumstances sometimes out of my control, I now feel the time is right to start painting again( Aug 2019). My work  ranges from satirical caricature to more realistic portraits, In the coming years I hope to paint a series of paintings depicting aspects of British life ranging from social, political or any other situation that deserves examination. To this point I have only had one major exhibition back in1994 at the Hyde Park Gallery London, It was very successful and led to many commissions Including a major one off commission from Dick Enthavon of Spear South Africa  to paint some twenty works all of a figurative nature. I feel it is important to explore the darker sides of human behaviour even if the paintings themselves are difficult to live with. Artist's I admire are Hogarth, Stanley Spencer, Hieronymus Bosh, Otto Dix, there are many more but that should give you an idea of were i'm coming from. Watch this site for new work over the coming years.
