I live in Manchester in the UK I am influenced by L.S. Lowry and Arthur Delaney, Northern artists. I started out as a naive-pictorial artist, but as I have developed, I have become more pictorial, though my work still has some naive elements. I have done some nostalgia tram paintings, but now am concentrating on portraiture and figurative art. When I paint a portrait of someone, I am looking for an interesting facial expression, which demonstrates something of the subject's character and psychology, as well as what they look like.
