ABOUT THE ARTIST

I tuned and restored pianos for 15 years before changing careers and becoming a bicycle mechanic 10 years ago. I have always practiced art however it was only mid-way through 2020 where I was encouraged to share it with the public.

Statement

After being away from the easel for quite a few years, circumstances in 2020 have encouraged me to return to art and put my work out into the public for the first time.

Portraying human emotion without the use of facial expression is the main theme of my work. Having had no formal training in art practice gives me the freedom to explore structures and techniques without having to concern myself with what is aesthetically or technically ‘correct’.

There is no pre-planning or sketching that goes on before I start a painting, however the concept of starting with a real and definable image and then removing, confusing and distorting its reality is a theme I am guided by.
