Art has been the main focus in my life as long as I can remember.I regard myself as self-taught, but have studied anatomy and figure drawing at various stages in my career .This has helped me gain a more in depth understanding of figurative abstracts and the rythms of the male and female form. The language of the body-a universality, the interaction, the line ,a truth Most of the work I do now is to do with the juxtaposition of colour, form and shape. I feel there is a need to continually explore new media to further demonstrate the way they interact. In order to achieve this I have incorporated digital photography into my portfolio, as a key means of expressing this. I believe painting has to have it?¦s own presence, people react to painting in a multitude of intangible ways. Paintings are simultaneously graphic and emotive, But above all to be enjoyed
