I am a painter, working primarily in a non- figurative language, taking inspiration from the contemporary urban environment. I examine the detailed fabric and structure of buildings and the random features and surfaces to be found there. My recent research has focussed on the distinctive aesthetic of post war Brutalist buildings.

Materials, surface and process are important to me in my painting. Working primarily in oils, I enjoy building up a subtle, rich surface, with an interplay of forms across the canvas, to produce images which have both simplicity and depth.
