Lives and works in London, England
(* 1963 in Coleford, England) attended the Cheltenham College of Art (Foundation Studies) from 1980–81 and studied painting from 1982–86 at the University of Reading, Department of Fine Arts (BA Hons. Painting). In 1988 he finished his studies with an MA in painting at the Chelsea School of Art in London. His multi-layered wax paintings use various shapes in free and geometric abstraction. Numerous opposites such as drawing and painting, transparency and opaqueness, line and plane, colour and non-colour, glossy and matt surfaces come together in multi-faceted inscrutable whole. The layered wooden picture ground is often wrapped in plexiglass, so that the structure of the picture filters through reinforcing its sculptural and architectural composition.
