As a figurative artist I work predominantly on paper deriving subject matter from direct observation.
My work features in public, private, and corporate collections in the UK and abroad.
Drawing is the bedrock of my professional activity. The work reflects personal interests and events. It seeks to entertain, and intrigue, through its idiosyncrasy. Drawing informs my printmaking too, mainly etching with aquatint.
As a documentary artist I record activities as they take place and become a fly on the wall.
Reportage commissions/projects take the form of Residencies.

I graduated from Liverpool Polytechnic in Graphic Design and Illustration in 1983. Initially I worked as a Graphic Designer and Illustrator in Liverpool. I moved to the Lake District in 1985 and developed an interest in fell walking, which inspired work based upon the local landscape. I later moved into using mixed media and ‘composites’ of remembered places, which led to my work becoming increasingly abstract.
My current style explores the relationship between colour, texture and pattern using acrylic, gouache and mixed media. My abstract compositions reflect a variety of influences including Picasso, Matisse and abstract expressionism.
My most recent work has started to incorporate personal graphic symbolism and lettering which references my early days as a designer.
I have always found drawing the human form both fascinating and challenging, and I love the medium of print because of its ability to produce multiple images.
These original prints are not reproductions of drawings or paintings... each hand made plate being inked by hand and printed separately giving variation from print to print.... making each one an original.
ETCHING ON PAPER
Graduated from Victoria University, Manchester and went on to teach for over 20 years.
He has spent several years in Japan and Sweden learning and teaching. In both countries he exhibited in galleries: in Tokyo and Stockholm.
Since returning from Sweden, he has exhibited in galleries all around the northwest and taken part in many arts festivals as well as organising events in Vale Royal.
His work is varied and exciting. From illustrations for children’s books to spray can art on walls and murals of life sized figures. He works in the community having done commissions for example for the Olympic Committee in Crewe in 2012. He creates covers for magazines such as The Reader and has held solo exhibitions in various locations around the country.
He is on the boards of several organisations for the Arts in the Northwest and is a part time teacher at Mid Cheshire College.
Having made the step to working in a commercial setting at Funky Aardvark, he is setting his goals at being more commercially astute and in a wider context, bringing art in general terms to venues such as castle Park Arts Centre and being more involved in Cheshire Artists Network as they hold their annual exhibition this year during Festival of Arts in Northwich. This year he faces the challenge of curating the whole event including demonstrations and exhibits too to be displayed on a narrow boat
