ABOUT ME

I am a retired artist that is still in the full flow of creativity. My art consists of atmospheric, strange, quirky paintings, drawings and sculptures using oils, acrylics and mixed media. Much of the work has a story to tell. In the past, I have run art courses here (UK) and Kefalonia and have done on-line art demonstrations for an international art teaching site. In 1999, I was an artist in residence at the Newark Academy in the US while exhibiting art there and at the New York Art Fair

BIOGRAPHY

I have been an artist for many years. I have been involved with other artists from Europe, exhibiting and collaborating. I am now officially retired but still fully active with my own art, creating new works (paintings, drawings and sculptures). 

For a number of years, I taught art in the community through a local college and also ran a number of independent art courses in the UK and Kefalonia. I now create purely for myself.

TECHNIQUE

As I use mixed media my techniques vary. I draw (pencil and coloured pencils), I paint (oils, oil sticks, acrylics, watercolours, inks, rags). I sculpt (with all sorts) e.g. unusual lighting effects, cheese wax, perspex, manikins and laminate wood
