My painting career began with tense yet humorous depictions of urban life.  More recent work now takes my commentary far beyond the simple, observed situation and I hope adds a contemporary perspective on the North of England painting tradition. Whilst maintaining a deep sense of irony and tension, my critical gaze comments on the complexities of the human condition. 
The results are multi-layered narratives – at times confusing, deliberately open-ended and enticing the viewer to speculate their interpretation, adding their own experience.  This discursive, ‘is it or isn’t it?’ kind of text is heightened by the assortment of visual devices I employ.  Semi-transparency, subtle distortion and visual metaphor provide a visual link between the real and the suggested, the imagined, or the past. My painting style is deliberate and precise, be it paintings in oil, acrylic or more recently watercolour and gouache.
Recent projects have focused on my adopted home town of Hebden Bridge – offering both a humourous, alternative take on this idiosyncratic town as well as straightforwardly honest landscapes and townscapes’.
