   Fine art has always been the most natural and exciting form of self-expression for me, and since the late 1990s I have developed my own style of collage. Following on from several years of exhibitions in my native UK, I have enjoyed the challenge and excitement of living in New York. The environment around me brings great inspiration for new art. I also draw on my experiences of traveling abroad with my wife, Marie.

   I enjoy working in a range of genres: urban, landscapes, portraits and decorative art. I wish my work to have a sense of peace and I often aim to achieve a dreamlike state in my compositions, in part inspired by music I listen to when working on pieces.

   Another area of great interest to me is collage portraits.  Early in 2011, I created a portrait made out of maps of the actor and travel show presenter Michael Palin, which I sent to him in London.  He responded positively to me in a message. The portrait currently resides at the Royal Geographical Society.

  I aim to greatly develop my use of texture and color within collage and painting and to experiment with new media.
