I was a mature student in Graphics at Bournemouth (then a technical college, now a University) and this design interest has carried over into my painting. Also it has engendered the love of type which has been included in many of my paintings. Some type faces are beautiful.
My paintings start from quite a random beginning with perhaps a rough surface of found objects ie muslin, sandpaper, fillers and glues or i may start from rough sketches 3/4" square just to draft out an idea and honing them as i go along. The joy of Acrylic is that it dries quickly so changes of direction can be made in a spontaneous fashion.
I have exhibited with the 303 for many years and the other local groups and have had solo and other group exhibitions.
