I find colour is like an explosion of happiness, it's a very pure thing. Painting is like playing, and you can work things out without thinking. I suppose my paintings are, on one level, the inside of my head on canvas as I'm not consciously painting anything exterior like a sunset or a feeling... I'm in the moment. But on another they are about all our experiences of colour.
I have been a professional actor since 1977 and started my painting degree in 2016 when my son went to university.
Lots of people ask me about my acting (which is an almost identical feeling to painting). I played Barry in the Full Monty and am soon to feature as Richard in Richard Eyre’s new film Allelujah, starring Judi Dench, to be released in 2022. IMDB page, Spotlight, and acting website.
