About Me


I grew up on the south coast of England. Pencil and paper seemed to be my constant companions during my school days.
A five year apprenticeship as a sign painter followed. After two years National Service (spent mainly in Africa) I then studied for three years at the Southern College of Art at Portsmouth to obtain my National Diploma in Design. This enabled me to gain a job with ICI and I worked for them for over thirty years as a commercial artist and colour consultant. Now a full time professional artist working in watercolour, oil and pastel from my Windsor studio. I paint in a traditional style, working 'on site' as much as possible. My drawings and paintings have been exhibited both in the UK and France where I have also tutored holiday painting courses. Currently giving demonstrations to art societies in South East England in watercolour and pastel - subjects include portraiture, landscape, seascape, still life and flowers.
