Born in Liverpool 1955 and grew up in a small mining town in South Yorkshire. After an apprenticeship at the local pit, travelled round Europe for a few years, doing all sorts of mindless jobs, filed under experience.
Studied art at Rotterdam Academie voor Beeldenden Kunsten and sculpture at Sheffield City Polytechnic. Now resident in Leeuwarden.
Art is an exploration of self in relation to the world in which we exist. Meaning for the artist manifests itself in the dialogue between self, experience, subject and material. The resulting art work is the evidence of the artist's dialogue. The viewer's dialogue with an art work, should they choose to engage with it, is entirely independent of the artist's influence.
