Despite his Jersey roots Ian has spent prolonged periods living and working in India& Sri Lanka, cultures which have deeply affected his life, and more recently two productive and delightful years in Devon in the south west of England.
Ian has travelled widely, an important source of inspiration for him and has shown his work in solo and group exhibitions in India, Sri Lanka, Germany, France, England and regularly in Jersey. Wherever he is in the world, the images he produces are characteristically distorted, playful and uplifting.
Ian draws with his left hand, although naturally right handed. But far from unnatural, this way of drawing produces a spontaneity and freedom of line that feels good and is as much related to the subconscious as the conscious. Ian has practised meditation for many years and this has directly influenced his way of working.
Ian’s uniquely wayward and quirky creations are in collections worldwide.
