It’s taken over 40 years for me to return to where it all started.
I went to art college in Loughborough in the late sixties, drawing painting and sculpting – after which I followed a course in design at Leicester College of Art.
Several years of teaching was followed by starting a pottery, then setting up a gallery in Stamford. Many thousands of pots later, I finally wound up the pottery in 2005, and returned to sculpture and painting.
To a greater or lesser extent the work is abstract, even though most of it starts from specific subject matter – they are all very hard won and largely intuitive – it’s a continual journey of discovery, there’s no final destination. Some do get resolved, even so, I seldom regard anything as really finished, there are always changes that could be made.
