Abstract artist and urban photographer. A working life as a graphic designer and illustrator, I had the opportunity in 2000 to spend time rediscover my painting skills and move away from being representational. Early efforts of abstract expressionism were not satisfactory as I needed to start from an observed image and work it through to abstraction. This resulted over a 10 year progression to my mature hard edged abstracts. A recent return to monotype printing has influenced my painting to be slightly more freer.
