I have been painting and drawing since leaving college in 1979. In that time the style of my work has changed considerably. The work on this site represents the direction my work has taken during the last few years.

Most of my works are still life paintings. The paintings represent my attempts to engage with the still life tradition exemplified by Zurbaran, Chardin, Morandi among others.
