‘Conversation’ – Ink on paper – A1
I am an artist living and working in Devizes, Wiltshire, England. This blog is my chance to share with you some examples of my work. My training was in sculpture but I also work with painting, drawing, collage, print and photography. Sometimes I feel like a prospector sifting sands and cracking open rocks without any clear idea of what I am looking for. Other times I feel like a gardener slowly cultivating strange plants, inedible fruits, and exotic weeds. I would like to think you might find something on this blog that is intriguing, stimulating or enjoyable. I am always happy to get feedback. Some of my work has found new homes, some has been recycled, but quite a few still live with me. If you are interested in acquiring a piece of my work, leave me a comment and I will get back to you. Or if you want to chat about anything to do with art generally, I am more than happy to have a natter. Click on the header titles and have a browse.

I was born in London in 1959. My family moved to Australia in the early 60’s; £10 POMHS. We moved back to England in 1976. I did a BA hons degree in Fine Art at Exeter College of Art and Design and graduated with a First in 1986. I was awarded a scholarship to study at the University of Massachusetts where I completed a Masters Degree in sculpture in 1988. I have taught Drawing and 3D Design at further education level and evening classes. I have been part of a number of exhibitions over the years and I currently work as a self-employed gardener and continue to pursue a variety of creative endeavours.
