‘My painting and drawing relates to the presence of man within an urban environment, the painting producing associations without being direct in representational or figurative terms. I like to use a variety of materials in my drawings and paintings, such as charcoal, graphite, ink, acrylic and aerosol and let the work grow and evolve naturally.’
Commissioned work to date has included 9 Original Paintings for John Lewis Liverpool (Expresso Bar and Coffee Shop) and paintings for The Hilton Hotel Liverpool Business Meeting Rooms and artwork for the recent Jake Bugg album "On My One". (Images Courtesy of Keith Sweeney, and Mark McNulty.)
