I studied in Leamington Spa and Derbyshire, through the late 70s and early 80s. I found it a period where wild rule breaking punk attitude and experimentation was encouraged. This continues to seep through into my paintings today, I think. It has only been in the last few years that I have actually been exhibiting publicly, however.
Inspiration may come from a lot of areas; music, nature, who knows? The results just seem to evolve like a journey. While I may start out with a mental picture of what I want - my work never follows those predetermined ideas, instead growing with each new colour I mix and apply.
