Vitruvius tells us Architecture is “Commoditie, Firmenes and Delight”.

I focus on these elements of Function Construction and Aesthetics exploring all the possible algebraic combinations overlaid with a range of priorities uniquely relevant to each project.
Architect / Artist / Designer / Town Planner.
I believe that all these disciplines have a common denominator and that my efforts in various mediums are inextricably linked.

I am interested in all forms of visual art – ROSC – the poetry of vision.
Drawing and painting particularly have been a life long pursuit running in parallel with, and informing my architecture.
I am fascinated by the imprint of nature and human nature on buildings – weathering, ageing, usage, etc. etc.
Fully retired in 2009 I now have the freedom to pursue my  lifetime hobby of painting.  I enjoy experimenting with different approaches and mediums.
