EXECUTIVE SUITE, Brighton and Hove Council Offices

BIOGRAPHY

I was brought up in East Anglia then subsequently lived in Oxford, London and the Caribbean. For the last twenty-seven years I've lived in Brighton. This locality has huge variety and potential for artists, in terms both of raw material and sociability.

In May 1999 I opened up my house and showed with nine other artists and makers as part of Brighton Festival, and now open up bi-annually as THE DOG HOUSE www.artinthedoghouse.co.uk.

Printing and painting were my starting point, from which I gravitated onto plasterwork, collage and, finally, photography. Developing the potential of Photoshop has absorbed me for the last several years.

I've exhibited widely, and have had prints, collages or photographs included in shows at - for example - The Royal Festival Hall, Rye Art Gallery and Brighton Museum. My photographs have been on loan to the council, and hung in the Chief Executive's Suite In Brighton and Hove Council Offices. I'm very much involved in Brighton's festival of open houses during May.

Initially I used a rather ancient Canon A1 and 35mm film to take my photographic images, gravitated onto a Canon350D digital camera and have recently upgraded to a Canon 550D. Technically I'm pretty primitive and I suppose the overall structure and direction of what I do comes, simply, from ideas - and how best the idea might be carried out.
