I consider myself to be a local artist, making positive images of my neighbourhood and the community I know well. 

Out and about in east London, finding a good place to draw I see the varied effects of regeneration and the signs of social problems that locals face everyday. 

Recently my paintings have a narrative about outdoor games e.g. Cricket and Tennis, this is a way of referring to the indomitable spirit of East London communities. I am making an image of a hoped for base level; where people in the community have positive human relationships, a sense of purpose and a decent home.

Regeneration of East London

As an artist with over thirty years experience of working with community groups in Bromley by Bow, I am equally committed to making works that explore a deeply urban affair between a new world created in the pursuit of progress and modernity and the community that it is setting out to serve. A community whose optimism is by no means universal because they have seen before that the developers’ bulldozers can just as easily destroy the inner-city infrastructure geared to serving local needs.
