I started out designing spectacle frames for the rich and famous in Berkeley Square then over the years in business spent a lot of time designing shop interiors and window displays. Thus I guess I see art in terms of design wherein I'm trying to balance a composition in terms of shapes and colours. This is why I've never settled into one particular genre because just about anything I see can fit into this idiom. I'm also constantly studying the work of all sorts of artists and often find myself influenced by whomever I'm reading about at the time - Monet, Pisarro, Lanyon .......! ....... so as I'll not be appreciated until I'm long gone here's your chance to buy work at next to nothing as your ' hedge fund ' !!
