While looking at all the art and artists that i feel have had an impact on me and my work it would be completely remis of me not to acknowledge the influence that members of my family have had on me over a number of years. Both my parents are artists and were lecturers as well as collectors of art and crafts.
My wife is a textile artist specialising in embroidery who has a particular talent for colour – something for which i have a lot to learn. We both tend to bounce ideas off each other which can be good and bad. Unfortunately for me she has a strong dislike of ‘brown’ pots, so i really should stop making them!
