» INDEX

"I was born in Surrey, England in 1946, but have lived in New Zealand on and off since the 80’s and permanently since 1991. I went to sea as a boy in the British Merchant Navy (1963 - 72) and first came to New Zealand in 1972.

I have always painted and studied art informally, I am a self-taught painter and jewellery maker. I am influenced by the Minoan, Cycladic and Celtic cultures as well as the modern artists, Brancusi, Picasso, Giocometti and Marini. Visits to St. Ives, Cornwall UK, where artists like Alfred Wallis, Ben Nicholson, Roger Hilton, Bob Law, Breon O'Casey and Bryan Illsley have lived, influenced my thinking.... abstraction, with a leaning towards simplified figuration, where birds, boats and sea are not far away."
