1941 Born in Yorkshire Trained at Southend School of Graphic Design
1993 Retired to pursue artistic ambition.
Spends one morning a week as a volunteer in the art studio at Headway object drawing with people with acquired brain inquiry.
I came to pastels as a young man working in Canada alongside man doing wonderful free illustrations of the project we were working on and have used them ever since for both work and pleasure. I note that my work has gone from loose to tightly graphic recently.
Mainly Pastel Society exhibitions, art festivals and open studio exhibitions.
Method of working:
I use pastels rather like watercolour artists - by creating a pallet of colour and dipping into I using tissue paper and hands to apply the pastel. I use paper masks, all the time, rather like a screenprinter lays on different areas of colour. I love the blank sheet of card or paper and not knowing what I will end up with. I make thumbnail sketches or more recently use photos for reference.
