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 techniques.

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
