Biography

I paint unique, bizarre sensually vibrant urban landscapes or cityscapes usually of Manchester in the North of England thereby following in the tradition of Valette, L.S. Lowry and others. My paintings often  begin with an almost Lowryesque naivism but then wander into more bizarre  directions eclectically pooling influences as diverse as Soutine, Munch, Derain, cartoons and lately even elements of abstract expressionism wherein I try to marshall its useful emotional and sensual qualities in an otherwise figurative landscape.  My paintings have been used promotionally by the University of Lancaster, the University of Manchester, in pop videos, in magazines, and made into postcards by the Manchester Tourist Office. They are exhibited regularly in the Northwest of England, and are in private collections around the world.
