Circle & Line







Welcome to my website. My work, primarily painting, reflects my interest in mathematics, physics and journeying through a mapped landscape. It is arranged under the following themes: Circle & Line, Mapping, Landscape, Mazes, Waves and Sculpture. To view a theme please click on its link above.

Originally from Cardiff, I read physics at Oxford University. I then moved to Northumberland where I became a Senior Lecturer in Mathematics at the University of Northumbria. On retirement I gained an Honours Degree in Fine Art at Sunderland University.

My work has been selected for exhibition at many venues, for example: St David's Hall in Cardiff, Durham Art Gallery, The Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art in Sunderland, University of Northumbria Gallery,  The Biscuit Factory in Newcastle, Hexham Abbey, Queen's Hall Gallery in Hexham and St Nicholas Cathedral in Newcastle, Oxford Art Society Open Exhibition, the Cornerstone Gallery in Didcot and the Broadway Arts Festival.

I moved to 2018 and live in Drayton where I have a studio/gallery.
