My favourite subjects have been painting landscapes on the spot in oil, life drawing and sculpting in various media where I favour rapid poses in attempts to convey the spirit of the model more than factual recordings.

In endeavouring to reduce the subject to its essentials, I am gradually moving towards abstraction. But I’m not there yet…

I was an art historian and museum curator which instilled an encyclopaedic knowledge of art from the ancient world to the 21st century which has influenced my own output as greatness inspires the imagination.

 

 

 

 

Currently I’m obsessed with:
