In 2005 I left England to live in France, and also aquired a small flat in Goa, India.
Previously my art style was based in surrealism, but upon leaving England I changed to a freer
more expressionistic style reflecting my new life experiences.
I spend approximately 5 months in India and the rest in France painting in watercolour,gouache
My main interest in subject matter is the behavioural interaction between people and their hidden
psychological mental activities which take place during this interaction.
Stylistically I struggle to create a 'painting' rather than a picture, attempting to avoid mere illustration;using the dictum from Francis Bacon that a new form of realism needs to be created and a new role is required for art.
