In general my pictures are to do with 'people'. In some there is the suggestion of a narrative - perhaps implying that some incident (great or small) might have occurred. When I depict subjects other than people these are likely to be aspects of nature . . . acting as metaphors for human activities or else nature profoundly affected by man.
Since the day I graduated (in ...Fine Art) from St Martin's School of Art, London in 1971 I have worked full-time as an artist. Over that time I have worked in a variety of mediums (paintings, drawings, constructions, original prints) and explored a great many themes.
