Born in Sheffield in 1948 my first love was singing but followed closely by "art". Art to me meant anything creative and when I went to Maidstone College of Art in 1969, it was a very experimental time! I did photography, film,"events", painting and installations.
Then I cam across the work of Aviva Gold, whose method of "painting from the inner' really released something in me...maybe because i helped to put aside the inner critic and allow me just to express whatever needed to be expressed. I just revel in the texture, colour and feel of the paint till slowly an image starts to come through. I love unconscious imagery and the paintings take many twosts and turns, transforming from one image to another until it feels "complete". This can take many hours and involve a mix of emotions as the images come through. It is a deep and joyful process and I hope that this feeling comes through in the work. An extra bonus would be if the viewere can resonate with the images from inside themselves.
