studied art late in life as a mature student initialy
with very traditional ideas but they changed rapidly
as I learned more about the modern and contemporary
world of art.
initial interest as an artist was in painting and
drawing, this later expanded into sculpture and I
spent some time experimenting with construction using
natural and found objects.
unfortunate change in circumstances meant that I had
to live in a small london flat. The lack of space
made working on large pieces impossible. Frustrated
I turned to the digital world of cyber space where
my creative working environment could be as large
as I wanted while it sat tardis like inside the small
grey box of a computer.
found a medium which though popular for with designers
illustrators and animators. Computers are usual considered
a medium for graphics and have not yet made a huge
impact on the fine art community. It has become something
of a mission for me to try and change that perception
of computer art. I believe an image created with computer
is as valid a statement for an artist as anything
created by painting, drawing or any other traditional
computer work currently falls into two main areas,
abstract and landscape. The abstracts are often textural
and frequently draw from landscape as their initial
landscapes are from my imagination and persue an interest
in spiritual and religious ideas I first explored
as a sculptor.
now live in a house and once more have the space to
work on a larger scale. I hope with in the next year
to start painting again and also am considering some
ideas for new sculpture and mixed media projects.
current artwork is exhibited as limited edition giclee
prints and has in the last year been shown in a number
of venues around Lancashire where I now live by the
my site and come back again soon,
