I studied Fine Art at Canterbury Art College. I have worked in the art world ever since, first knitwear, then animatronic costume making at Jim Hensons, followed by community projects, (mostly based around printing on fabric, banners and flags with schools, elderly care, hospitals and even football clubs).
More recently after a move to East Anglia I have been working from my studio on the North side of Lowestoft Dock. I create prints influenced by my surroundings, the industrial and the pragmatic buildings, the huge skies and water infused light.
Being in a seaside situation has also reignited a long held love of early hand tinted post-cards and this in turn has encouraged an interest in mass print methods such as seen in Pop Art, Comics and postcards.
My colours may sometimes seem extreme but it is their interaction that really drives the work.
This current work is inspired by Industry and Brutalism.
The colour of each print is individual to the image.
