Art school education in the 1950s was academic and could be dull, but I was there for five years, training as a painter and lithographer. After that, at London University Institute of Education, I enjoyed making coloured figurative ceramics with Bill Newland. My last proper job was as Head of the Art Department at Borough Road College (later part of Brunel University).
In the 1990s, working with my wife, I started making brightly coloured ceramic heads. Then, working on my own, these developed into mostly monochrome, more expressionistic sculptures. I am still interested in making figurative pieces, but in my growing old age, I am beginning to experiment with colour again on stoneware paperclay.
My work is permanently on display at Skylark 1 Gallery, Gabriel’s Wharf, London South Bank.
