First Class Hons BA in Ceramics
Central School of Art and Design, London 1977 to 1980

Foundation Course, Hornsey School of Art, London 1976-1977

Born in 1955 in London, now living in York, UK

My main career was as a ceramic artist for 30 years (there are a few pictures of my pots at the bottom of this website) but over the last nine years I have focused on drawing and making abstract collages.

Abstract Collages

2014 to present
The collages are explorations of juxtapositions, composition and colour, made from painted or found papers. They begin in a spontaneous way. The task then is to try to organise, adjust and distill the elements into something with a sense of harmony. My aim is to have plenty of interest in the detail as well as an overall cohesiveness.

The whole process relies on intuition about what seems visually right. It is a process of adding to and taking away, a little more of this, a little less of that. It’s a bit like adjusting a recipe until you know the taste is right.

Hopefully after the struggle, something emerges that has a beauty, a sense of resolution and balance.
