Interests and Personality

BiographyIf I asked you to apply a label to my work, the words 'abstract', 'modernistic' or 'contemporary' might spring to mind, but I would prefer not to be pigeon-holed in any particular way. I approach each painting as a bit of an adventure - a challenge and an experiment - employing the three elements of shape, colour and texture to create a visual impact. I see art as closely akin to music, with melody corresponding to shape, harmony to colour and rhythm to texture. Many of my pictures are influenced by my love of music. I'm also motivated by my love of Mediterranean countries. Greece in particular. 'Chromata' is the Greek word for colours - hence the name of my website. (www.chromata.co.uk) Born and bred in Wales, and having Welsh parents, I guess that makes me as true Welsh as you can get, but I now live in England. Much of my life has been mis-spent working in the IT industry, whereas I should have been striving to create beautiful works of art.
InterestsBeing creative, artistically, musically and in a practical kind of way.
MusicDepends on my mood, but Jazz mainly.
FilmsLife of Brian. The funniest and cleverest film ever produced. Apart from that - anything with a brain-tickling plot and good cinematography.
Television99% of TV sucks. If I lived alone I'd get rid of the box.
BooksJohn Le Carre. John Fowles. Colin Dexter. JRR Tolken
