Cat 115.  SELF PORTRAIT STOOPING IN 1985.  10’’x16’’
Cat 120  AFRICAN VIOLET.

I’ve only included a few examples of early paintings. These date from after I finished my degree at Maidstone in 1982.

I spent most of my time at Maidstone drawing. There had been very little teaching over the three years and I had not even, for example, learned to think in terms of warm and cool colour so when I began painting it was almost from scratch.

I wanted to be Cezanne and Bonnard.
