Biography

I was born in 1946. In the 1960s and part of the 70s I was an airman in the Royal Navy, Fleet Air Arm. I joined Durham Constabulary in 1971. In 1999 I retired from policing and began teaching sociology and criminology at Durham Universty with emphasis on policing and researching crime. I've just retired again and am relaxing into art. I've been married 49 years to Annette. Life's too routine and boring these days. That's probably why I love life as surreal and absurd. It all helps to deal with the dark bits of life. I like drawing and painting to make political statements and surreal connections. Art should reflect the inner emotions of the artist’s experiences and views. I like to paint what I imagine too.
