“On the outside looking in”

Being hard of hearing, I have spent all of my life on the outside looking in. On the outside of conversations and activities, piecing snippets together and filling in the blanks in a hearing abstracted world. The loneliest place for me is a room full of people

Through my art I want to convey some sense of what it is like living in a world of missing pieces.

When I paint I move to the inside looking out. 


I have nearly always lived in in the north of England- mainly in Cumbria but also a few years in Yorkshire. I was a chartered surveyor for many years and started painting when I left surveying.

I am drawn to buildings and structures and places of solitude and I am inspired by form and movement. See my news page for the latest on my projects.
