If you're an artist, what kind of art do you make?
an artist who makes drawings and paintings. From 1993-1996 I studied Fine Art at Goldsmiths’ College, London. Now I live and work in Warwickshire.
About my artwork
My work features loose, elliptical forms that appear frozen in movement. Some shapes are barely complete, while others appear solid and fully formed; they draw our attention or remain obscure. There is abundance, confusion, emptiness and calm.
The drawing suggests very simple narratives; the forms share a common direction, there is a sense of movement, there was a beginning and there will be an end. The viewer is free to imagine the pace of their movement, their origin and their demise.
The activity of drawing - the exploration of line, colour, transparency and opacity - underpins this. Tension and harmony appear between the well-defined shapes, faint marks and mistakes. Opacity and translucence bring levels of weight and depth. Presence and near-absence are invoked, so the forms become notional entities appearing and disappearing.

that sounds like something i would be interested in, where abouts in nottingham did you have in mind? As i lived there for a while and got to know quite a few of the arts crowed. I still keep in touch with some of them and the prospect of showing there would be a welcome one...
