 I am a  leading contemporary artist working in the South West of England and the South of France.
 Welcome to my Web Site. 
I am in the process of periodically updating this new web site to provide an up-to- date resource  to let you know  about my art work.  It may be worth a few visits to check on new updates.
Many thanks, George. 
     My work is hard to pigeon hole as I move easily from pure abstraction to seme representational pieces. Colour and pattern fascinate me and I employ a wide range of mixed media, with collage , photomontage and assemblage. I was trained initially as a Graphic and Interior Designer and later in Fine Art I appreciate the contribution that design has made to the visual sensibilities which we share and love. My pieces are unique in that they acnowledge the heritage of design and yet fall firmly in the catagory of Fine Art.
