Playing around with stencilling onto Chinese-design wrapping paper. These are quite small experiments – approx. A5 and A4 size; thinking about culture as a kind of imprint.

“A Title Stolen From Another Painting” is more lyrical than my usual style, yet it has its origins in some black and white minimalist collages I did before I started this project. I wanted to make something less stark but […]
I said I may not be able to post while I’m away but I thought it would be good to make an effort so here is After Meeting At Michael’s It Was Mayhem, number 25 of 50 Collages Before Christmas. […]
Apart from two pieces cut from a catalogue, the materials of this are my drawing and painting on to various materials – either recycling other work that didn’t work or made especially for collage. The title for 22/50 Collages Before […]
Another direction and style for number 21, Making Up For Lost Time, using mostly my photography plus a bit of created acrylic texture complimented by found graphic material. Yes the bees are mine too!
The title of this piece, “Two Blacks Don’t Make A White”, apart from it’s playful aspect, is purely descriptive. It is not so noticable in this reproduction, but the upper and lower forms are subtly different blacks. The upper shape […]
Here’s what happens when the first idea doesn’t work. In most cases when I start a piece of work I have a pretty good idea of what I want to achieve and how the finished piece will look. Sure there […]

With this self-portrait I aimed to paint a contemporary piece that would show masculinity whilst also displaying what I enjoy doing most, painting. The idea was to paint the portrait as if I was looking back at myself concentrating on […]
This was a painting I created using acrylic paint, black Indian ink and fine liner pen, I watered down the acrylic and ink to achieve a ‘watercolour’ wash of effects and wanted the colours to blend into each other. I […]
In this piece, I painted a symbolic representation of David Bowie’s song ‘Life on Mars?’ released in 1971. The line ‘Now she walks through her sunken dream’ conjured images of a surreal, blurred reality and the young girl with ‘mousy […]
