I was able to draw well from an early age, and was influenced and encouraged by George E Mackley, my art teacher at school, regarded as one of Europe's finest wood engravers.

My preferred medium is pure watercolour. I am excited by the translucence and subtle effects possible with this medium. The subject's I am interested in are: Landscapes of all types seascapes and estuary scenes, usually including boats river and lake scenes, sometimes including anglers architectural subjects Industrial subjects, often including derelict plant and machinery.

 

I exhibit with three art groups in Surrey and have had work in the Mall gallery on a number of occasions. I have work in private collections in the UK, France, Italy and as far apart as New Zealand and Canada.
