BA HONS Fine Art. University of Kent.
I have drawn and painted prolificly all my life. I spent my early career in the commercial art business. However I have realised a lifelong and compelling ambition to be a successful Fine Artist.My speciality is painting and through this medium I strive to express and evoke a mood of dark and foreboding isolation. Vast and empty land and urban scapes offer the emotions I search for, as do looming structures under dark cloud masses and night skies. These elements and their dystopic scenarios and melancholic lighting within the darkness inspire me and offer the opportunity to comment on contemporary culture.
Nevertheless I have a startling tendency to shift my genres and jolt my palette. This I do when I feel the need to refresh myself.
However, even with the change of subject matter and genre, my need to comment on contemporary culture remains unchanged.
BA Hons Fine Art at University of Kent.Started career in advertising at 15. I progressed to the position of Art and Photography Buyer at two of London's top Ad Agencies. I then started and ran my own group of creative companies, in Soho and Covent Garden successfully for a number of years. Pre art college exhibitions have been in commercial galleries that are not worth a mention. Since the start of my fine art career I have shown in galleries in Folkestone and contemporary galleries throughout Kent. My work is now well known in Folkestone and south east kent.This is a start that I am particularly satisfied with, as Folkestone is developing into a thriving centre for serious contemporary art.
