I am currently studying for a part-time degree in Fine Art at the University of Bangor after retiring from academic life in 2009. I am interested in the visual poetry of the everyday world encountered either at home or when I am out walking in the town or city. My approach is to respond intuitively to what I find. Mostly, I am drawn to the formal aspects of what I see. For example, the way certain colours are juxtaposed, the textures on the surface of things, a surprising geometry of form, or the way light and shadow fall in my home. More and more, my work is concerned with windows as frames and image-catchers; with organic forms; and the geometry of the built environment. These are the things that I am currently ‘vulnerable to in the world’, as the artist Michael Craig-Martin puts it.
