I recognize my need for mark making as a compulsion to draw and to represent the thoughts and desires of my heart in the form of an image. I have always been driven in this way. I see this creativity as a mimicry of the acts of the Creator. By doing so and provided the right setting, I am able to give worship. Ultimately, I want to remind the viewer of his or her relationship in the divine dialogue among God and people and to lead that viewer into deliberate conversation. I am currently studying the human male figure and the meaning of manhood in body, mind, and spirit as defined by God and wholly exemplified in flesh by the Son of God, Jesus Christ.

I love the countryside and nothing inspires me more than a good walk in the Yorkshire Dales or along the North Norfolk coast. I love the drama of the landscape, the colours of the land and sky, the fresh air and the peace and tranquillity of getting away from people and civilisation: feeling totally alone in the land. I love being surrounded by the sound and aroma of nature and being challenged by inclines and weather. It is my personal response to this feeling of breath-taking, awe inspiring beauty that I try to capture and express in my paintings. I cannot ever replicate it but I can try to bring the outside in.

For me painting and drawing is all very meditative and contemplative. It involves a lot of stillness. I try, if at all possible, to get into that frame of mind when I am painting that artists sometimes call “flow”: when one becomes blissfully unaware of time passing or what is going on outside the studio. It’s a mental state where deep unconscious processes take over and art happens without too much conscious struggle.

I am one of the members of Artspace, the art committee organising art events and exhibitions at Bradford Cathedral in West Yorkshire. My role is to work with the other members of the committee in general terms and to curate some of the fine art exhibitions at the Cathedral.
