As an artist and painter I began working with geometric pattern in the 1980s and have continued since. From 2017 I began to explore Islamic geometric design, and learning from books I taught myself how to draw some of the basic patterns. This has come to influence and inform subsequent work, with completed paintings dating from 2018, shown in the diorama, headings and listed under Works. See titles: Modulations, Suspension and Triplets. Titles chosen all relate in some way to music though it is a loose association. A change of direction occurred after my mother Marjorie died in 2015. Loss is dedicated to her.
