Most of my pictures are representational rather than abstract, but my drawings and paintings are more about pattern and colour than realistic representation. I spend much more time thinking of ideas and planning a new picture than I spend producing it. My main medium is pen and ink. Most of my pictures are coloured drawings, but sometimes I just paint with ink and hope for the best.

I have always liked to draw, and this was a useful skill in my career as a structural engineer. Now I have time, I am exploring new subjects and ideas.
