A little about me as an artist: -

As a mature student I studied art late in life, initially obtaining an A’ level and I followed that with a foundation course. Later I studied for a degree. I began with very traditional ideas but they changed rapidly as I learned more about the modern and contemporary world of art.

My initial interest as an artist was in painting and drawing, this later expanded into sculpture and I spent some time experimenting with construction using natural and found objects.

An unfortunate change in circumstances meant that I had to live in a small London flat. The lack of space made working on large pieces impossible. Frustrated I turned to the digital world of cyber space where my creative working environment could be as large as I wanted inside a computer.

I found a medium which though popular for with designers illustrators and animators. Computers are usual considered a medium for graphics and have not yet made a huge impact on the fine art community. It has become something of a mission for me to try and change that perception of computer art. I believe an image created with computer is as valid a statement for an artist as anything created by painting, drawing or any other traditional means.

Since moving to Lancashire I have exhibited alone and with The Quicksand Arts Group. Recently however I have concentrated on extending my education gaining a BA Hons in Fine Art and then qualifying as a teacher.
