I have been for over a half-century a figurative painter. Looking at my back catalogue I can see that the subject matter, and my treatment of it, has undergone more changes than I have imagined. These days I am drawn towards the opportunities presented by the essential elements of my local landscape; the spinneys of birch, the typical Breckland rows of gnarled pines, and the vast, silent conifers of Thetford Forest. These provide me with a never-ending supply of ideas. I enjoy the challenges of deconstructing and reconstructing these ideas, and the magic of finding out what happens. Just occasionally, I like to present myself with the challenge of producing work in a totally different style, a leap in the dark, ‘let’s see what happens!’ One result has been a return to the human form and face,
Painting is one continuous voyage of discovery and self-discovery.
