Painting and Drawing

I trained in fine art at the West of England College of Art and Royal College of Art. My preferred materials are oil paint, charcoal and soft pastels, all of which I love for their supreme malleability, enabling each piece of work to go through many transformations. In this sense, my painting is a process and not the production of a pre-planned image. I prefer to draw from 'life', using the environment and objects within it, whether an old door or a still life, although I also have made work in response to events in the wider world. I am not interested in copying, but in responding to what I see and what I feel about what I see.
