He says: “I am passionate about figurative and abstract contemporary art.

“My paintings don’t just exist, they are real and they represent who I am and what I feel. They are examples of my own interpretation and creation which emanate a sense of freedom and expression.”

The exhibition runs until July 31. For further details visit tennantsgardenrooms.com
