Tells us a little about yourself?

42 years of age, my day job is interior design and decoration.

What type of art work do you do?

Spontaneous, impulsive, semi-abstract, colourful…whatever emerges, really.

What inspires you / influences your work?

The unconscious, urban structures, pattern, music…pretty much everything.

Where did you train / develop your work?

The University of Glamorgan?  But nowhere specifically, it’s just something I’ve always done.

What do you like about being an artist living or working in Tooting and Furzedown?

The busy-ness and cultural diversity of the area.

Who is your favourite artist / art work and why?

Possibly Jean-Paul Basquiat. I like the immediacy of his work. Otherwise, the usual suspects: Bacon, Pollock, Arthur Boyd….too many to list.

What new projects do you have planned next?

I don’t really plan. I pretty much paint as and when the mood or impulse takes me.

Why are you taking part in Wandsworth Artists Open House?

I don’t often exhibit. I am curious as to the response the works will receive.

What can visitors to your open house look forward to?

Colour and diversity.

Whose work are you looking forward to seeing in the Wandsworth Artists Open House?

I look forward to seeing as many artists as possible.

Thank you Jon.  Jon’s work can be seen at venue 67.
