Born Kent U.K. 1943. On retiring early from a career as a pychotherapist I went to college to learn to paint. I now paint abstracts.
My method is to start with no fixed idea but to make a few gestural marks on the canvas and see what they suggest. I often alternate between periods of activitiy and reflection. The painting somehow seems to tell to me what to do next.
Often paintings are worked over several times before a conclusion is reached. I like to still the conscious chattering mind to allow unconscious process to take control. Painting is thus, for me, a kind of meditation.
Works are not ends in themselves but are the physical manifestations of inner processes. I leave the paintings untitled to allow you, the viewer, to respond in your own unique way thus becoming part of the creative process. I hope you enjoy them.
