ABOUT THE ARTIST
I originally trained and worked as a biologist, and then in later life studied Graphic Design as a mature student at Newham College, London and the University of Plymouth. After 12 years working as a graphic designer, I now paint in a graphic style and draw upon my background in the biological sciences and the natural world as a source of subject matter. In particular I am inspired by the creative possibilities and dynamic nature off the marine environment, and also the forms and structures of plant life. Sometimes my inspiration is quite random and I paint whatever catches my eye and as the mood takes me.
Techniques – I mainly paint using acrylics on canvas, with occasional forays into the worlds of mixed media and watercolours.Back
