I was born on Merseyside in 1959 and went to Newcastle University, where I gained a BA(Hons) in Fine Art in 1981. My work is abstract but takes its inspiration from different sources, including derelict buildings, graffiti, and jazz. I use a range of materials, (different papers, paints and plaster, etc) to create marks and textures. I work intuitively, encouraging an interplay between the conscious and unconscious, the material and the metaphysical, adding and taking away elements until a point of resolution is reached.
