I live and work in Southampton, a city dominated by the docks and the massive container port, such that cranes are what you see whenever you lift your eyes to the horizon. There is a staggering beauty to this landscape. I’m also interested in capturing movement, particularly of dancers, and showing the strength and muscularity of dance. I am a figurative painter working in oils and use strong colours although often I will paint with a limited palette. Rather than discuss my philosophy of art I hope that my work can say what I want it to say. I exhibit regularly at That Gallery in Basingstoke.
