Material Wealth

The pieces in this exhibition celebrate a love of making – illustrated with a playful juxtaposition of basic elements of being.

Lead, glass, wood, old paper and an ironing board form the starting point for an exhibition that demands to be interrogated.

Artist’s statement:

I am a teacher of BTEC Art and Design at a Comprehensive School in Cambridgeshire four days a week. The rest of my time is spent thinking about and making artwork. I am always inspired - sometimes by my students, sometimes by interactions with different people and experiences. My work has developed from illustrative, figurative drawing, through to bold colour, abstract statements using mixed media on a 2 dimensional support. I should be a sculptor - but am determined to wrestle with the problem of trying to express issues important to me through paint - and especially colour.

I exhibit fairly regularly in France and Italy and in Open Studios in Cambridge on alternate years.

I am a member of POSERS and draw from Life as often as I can.
