IRON & LIGHT
Below Birnbeck Towers Oil on panel 30cm x 75cm
I paint industrial, marine and urban spaces and structures (piers, viaducts, platforms, rigs), that prompt narratives in my imagination. I explore
these locations and complex silhouttes in ink and paint using both
gestural or chance execution as well as rigourous engineering and perspective drawing
I am inspired and influenced by Franz Kline, Cy Twombley as well as Japanese and Chinese Ink painters such as Pan Tianshu.

As a child I was surrounded by architectural and engineering design as well as artists and craftspeople before studying Fine Art in Birmingham UK. I have enjoyed an award-winning career in multimedia for many high-tech
organisations and communications companies while still creating my Art.
My work is in private collections around the world and in the UK National Collection
