The landscapes of south east London and elsewhere form the main themes of my work. I often focus on architectural and structural forms of the city around me, particularly industrial buildings, blocks of flats, streets, and structures of all kinds. My paintings emerge through on- and off-site sketchbook drawings and paintings, still and moving digital images collected on my iPhone. Sketches use charcoal, ink, acrylic, watercolour or pastels.
I work mostly on paper. Within individual works or series I tend to use a narrow palette, drawing on a wide range of tools and techniques to develop textures and layers.
