I work from imagination to create my own poetic vision of the world around me. Over time, I have developed a number of themes and characters, largely with origins in childhood memory and dream imagery.

Mad about art as a child, Mervyn had several pictures exhibited on Adrian Hills Sketch Club on TV. He tried to get into a local printing firm’s art department upon leaving school, but ended up in the Chemical Industry as a Colour Matcher in their Laboratory instead.

Over the past 18 months I have been working on a series of silkscreen prints focussing on the buildings of Bristol.
