Showing in Open Houses
I studied art at High Wycombe in the Chilterns, and Falmouth in Cornwall, before moving to Leeds twenty-five years ago. My paintings are of places that are very familiar to me - my walk to work, where I shop, and where I walk at weekends. I am trying to record a changing city, focussing on places and images that resonate with me. The abstract qualities of colour, line, form, space and pattern, and the emotional atmosphere of the painting, are as important to me as a convincing depiction of a real place.
