    About the artist

    The seemingly simplistic shapes and arrangements within these paintings does not come from a Pop Art or cartooning tradition but is a result of improvised drawing. The subject matter is recognisably harbours, boats and cafes etc. but I deal with these subjects purely in terms of shape and colour. The “game” of lining things up and jig-sawing shapes together is paramount. The works do not depict any particular place but I am happy to allow the viewer to recognise scenes from their own memories. My interest (and training) in Abstraction, Cubism and Minimalism continues to influence the outcome and therefore, in essence, the formally arranged composition within a rectangular, often square, format is everything!
