Biography

TRANSIENCE 6.
 
I first studied art at High Wycombe College of Technology and Art, and then studied Graphic design and worked as a technical illustrator and graphic designer for a number of years.
After graduating in 1994 from W.S.C.A.D (UCA) I then studied printmaking at The London College of Communication.


Artists Statement

Representation has not been my main concern but rather the undercurrent of emotions connected with the experience of shape, form, colour and materials that can convey the essence of the subject in abstract form.

The different materials I choose to make a painting are important to me, these often include a variety of media that alters the density of light within a work. These elements are combined to emphasise the depth of colour and spatial qualities, helping to bring together a work that has a physical presence.


My involvement with printmaking has influenced many aspects of my approach to painting especially in the making of various surfaces for printing plates. Other experimental techniques have also narrowed the boundaries, where the two disciplines seem almost indistinct.


Paintings are shown both regionally and nationally and are held in both public and private collections.
Also exhibited at The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition on a number of occasions and in 'group' and solo shows with a number of London Galleries and also shows in Cork Street, London.

Prints have been exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, The Royal West of England Academy, The National Print Exhibition and The Business Design Centre, London.
