Personal Statement
After completing my training in fine art I left to pursue a career in engineering. I continued to paint, principally with oils and collage. I retired at the end of December 2011 and have now returned full time to my passion for painting. I am currently working with both oils and acrylics on paper and canvas, although I have worked extensively with watercolour. I have been able to develop a visual language within the subject areas that have a personal significance to me.
