Ever since I can first remember I have been excited and motivated by the activity of picture-making.
I went to art school in the early seventies where my mental health problems first became apparent.
Over the years my creative development has undergone many disruptions due to mental health problems.
My need to make marks is a vital part of living.
After periods of breakdown and with the proper support follows periods of breakthrough. These experiences which threaten to disrupt my life often in form and give rise to renewed creative experiences.
The struggle to maintain a creative balance in life and in art is intrinsic to my practice as an artist.
Using paint and canvas, charcoal, pastels, pen and ink, photography or indeed any material to express an idea or a feeling.
I would like my art to both inspire and challenge the notion of mental health.
