The excitement for me as an artist lies not in exploring the unknown but in how I can effectively organise a visual arrangement that reflects the atmosphere and intensity of an environment, evoking a precise moment of the day under specific light and conditions. I hope you enjoy the work

Since I was a teenager I have been committed to drawing and painting what might be termed, ‘the almost gone’. I have always shown concern for my immediate external environment and the traces left by people on the surface of things, in city and landscape, urban and rural.

Be it the changing use of buildings, the crumbling of dry stone walls, abandoned terraces and disused barns, faded shop signs, dilapidated street furniture or graffiti, they are all the stuff of my pictures, to be recorded before being swept away.
