I work with many forms of media: I use cardboard, I paint and I draw. I have also developed my skills in life drawing, where we studied cubism. A lot of my work is inspired by the idea of building work up, developing 2D drawings into 3D art.
I have curated exhibitions both in Participate and at the Bear Step. The first was a joint exhibition put together with my son Reuben, who is also an artist here. A lot of my work is a bit dark so I always endeavour to involve myself with the halloween exhibitions. I was also involved with the Wilfred Owen edition, which finished last year.
At the moment I am developing a ‘steampunk’ 3D model of an airship as well as revisiting oil painting somewhat. I haven’t used oil since I was about 20, so it is a talent I am somewhat rediscovering.
