You Put the Cod in My Head, Oil on canvas, 46 x 61 x 1.5 cm, 2021
Painting for me is acting on canvas, you do lots of prep and then turn yourself off and live in the moment. The colours and shapes are your set, new marks your dialogue.
Like acting painting is all about listening.
In the 1970's I trained at the Central school of Speech and Drama and have worked extensively in UK TV and film. You might have seen me as Barry in the The Full Monty and I recently played Michael Ellacott in the TV series Strike, starring Holliday Grainger and Tom Burke.
