I studied art at the University of East London where I obtained my BA(Hons) and MA in Fine Art. My paintings, mainly on canvas in oils or acrylics, and sometimes in water-based printing inks, are either figurative or else abstracted compositions depicting my own interpretation, or impression, of reality. Some paintings depict the female nude, effectively a celebration of the female form which I have attempted to render in compositionally interesting ways. Others are abstracted compositions based on things seen around me, often architectural in nature reflecting my city environment, colourful, personal impressions based on actual urban scenery or else imagined urban landscapes. I am interested in the lumps and bumps which go to make up the city, in the interesting, sometimes quirky, architectural shapes of some new buildings as well as the sense of dereliction of others, and like to use bold, sometimes surrealistic, colours in an attempt to reach beyond the drab reality of the buildings which inhabit much of London.
