Statement

 

 

Biography

I was born in London , but my childhood on the Isle of Wight inspired me to work from the elemental landscape and world around me as a free ,direct and natural way of learning and enquiry.

I grew up with an affinity for the work of the painter David Bomberg and his sense of approaching nature through drawing, as a tool to establish a poetry of form as an interconnected reality.
