A brief history of my experience, inspirations and aspirations.

I am a professional artists and tutor, and I now live in Bideford, Devon. I am retired Chair of Swindon Artists Forum, and currently run Torridge Arts and Crafts Group, www.torridgeartsandcrafts.com.

I have been painting forever and am self-taught for the most part, my work has been chosen by clients across the UK, also in Spain, Finland, Germany, Canada and U.S.A.

I work in acrylics, oils, pen and wash, and water colours, painting a variety of subjects

My paintings mostly explore the harmony of colour, tone and light, and the creation of atmosphere inspired by nature, mostly inspired by my local coast and moorland. Others are just for the fun of it when I spot something that takes my fancy. My paintings are produced using different techniques and mediums, because I am not tied to any specific creative formula, which means there is a great variety in my output. My art is an adventure in exploring and challenging my own abilities; in art you never stop learning.

Commissions Accepted. Large canvases are a joy to work on, and am happy to produce unique feature pieces to your requirements, so please contact me if you would like to discuss a painting, or have any questions.
