|I was born in Oxford in 1945. I attended Brighton and the Slade School of Art in the Sixties. After I left college I spent eleven years creating a dress design and manufacturing business called Mabs. By 1980 I had returned to painting full time. Around 1998 I began a series of paintings accompanied by a text, based on my mental breakdown I had in 1969. I widely exhibited these paintings, most notably at the Mexico Gallery, London, 2004.|
I continued painting with a more general theme and exhibited with Outsider Artists, most recently with Wild Old Women, Novas Gallery, London 2008
All my works are large canvases, which I elaborately frame, or display as hangings.
feel that painting has lost its striking imagery which was so successfully used by the Surrealist and Symbolist painters, now stolen by filmmakers who are having such a Renaissance with them.
