My paintings are heavily influenced by seventeenth century Dutch art and have a dark, Northern European style and pervading sense of unease. They reflect the claustrophobic atmosphere of the inner-city and a recurring theme is the North London park where I routinely walk my two whippets.

My work has been shown widely, including the John Moores and Whitechapel Open Exhibitions and I have paintings in private collections in the UK, Europe, the United States and Mexico.
