I graduated from Cardiff Faculty of Art in 1995 with a B.A (hons) in painting and then…stopped painting. I didn’t pick up a paint brush in anger for another thirteen years. The reason for this is many and varied. One being that my writing took over, but I never lost the itch to paint, then the next thing you know…

 

 

Most of my paintings are inspired by another great passion of mine, music and going to gigs. I love the frenetic energy and colour of a great band live. Another theme which has began to enter into my paintings is my Buddhist practice, my experience of meditatting and the Dharma.  I use oil paint on paper and have rediscovered the joy and possibilities of using the materials. I’m inspired by the art of Frank Auerbach and Leon Kossoff. Most of my work has a figurative element.
