I am a painter based in Thanet for the last 27 years originally from South East London and Ive been a regular visitor to the Kent Coast all of my life since some of my family moved here in the early 70s. I studied Graphic Design and Illustration at Medway College of Design and later on took a different direction in Fine Art. I am classically taught by tutors through a mix of the Slade, Camberwell and Chelsea art school teachings. Through my peers I am greatly indebted as I took a little bit from each one and apply it to my own ways of working today. I have a strong affinity for nature and the conservation of it and the symbolism contained within. I work intuitively knowing that the meticulous and prolonged studies of observing the human form and natural landscapes in my art school days are ingrained in me. I have exhibited my work over the years in local art galleries here in Thanet as well as in London and Limassol in Cyprus.
