My work is influenced by the lives of real people as well as mythology and tradition.
I have always been interested in the fragile nature of the human condition. How we all make quick, knee-jerk decisions about others – mostly from just a look – with no real idea as to whether our evaluation is right or wrong.
In my painting I try to capture a single expression and provide the viewer, with the luxury of time, an opportunity to guess the story behind the look.

Having completed a graphic design course (BA Hons) at Camberwell School of Art, I spent the next 25 years living and working in London, including running my own small building firm. In 2013 I moved to Suffolk and started painting and drawing again in earnest.
