How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

My paintings tend to fall into two categories - semi abstract landscapes (imaginary, but certainly influenced by the beautiful Wye Valley and surrounding area) and non-representational abstract (ie nothing recognisable apart from shapes and colour). I nearly always start painting without any pre-conceived idea as to what I'm going to paint, so each work is an exciting journey into the unknown.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

Artists are free to create, and I love to create. Give me a blank canvas, a few pots of paint, some palette knives, a J cloth, a sponge and a tiny paintbrush and I'll be off with the fairies!

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

I am an artist, mainly creating abstract and abstract landscape paintings.

CV & Education, relevant & leading to your artistic practice: 

I studied art for a short time (it's a long story!) at the North Oxfordshire School of Art, and I have a few fingers in a few creative pies. I've been commissioned to illustrate and to draw cartoons, and I'm also a musician, playing piano and bass - I also write songs. In 2004, I created and produced 26 episodes of a stop frame animated children's TV series for the BBC called Summerton Mill which was broadcast around the world and is available online. Abstract and non-representational art is my passion. Because I rarely use brushes, the colour of my fingernails usually matches the colours in my most recent painting!

Exhibitions in the last 3 years: 

My paintings are available to be seen and purchased from Greenstage Gallery near Worcester. I have also been exhibited in Gallery at Home in Usk, Creates Gallery in Monmouth, The Gaff (an amazing Michelin-listed restaurant in Abergavenny), The Gaff in Bath (another amazing restuarant - wait for it - in Bath!) and in online exhibitions and competitions.
