Formal training: 1982 - 1983 North Devon College, Art and Design.
I was born in the mid 1960s and I have been drawing and painting on-and-off for the past thirty years. I am a member of the North Devon Arts and the Society For All Artists and I live and work in south west England. My work is frequently exhibited in group exhibitions and is widely represented at a number of art galleries throughout North Devon. As an artist, I am often drawn by the aesthetics of a subject. Whenever I see something that is visually interesting, such as a woodland setting, a beautiful building or a garden, a landscape or a stunning coastal scene, I will try to capture that subject as perfectly as I can onto canvas (usually using photographs or a sketch as a reference aid) and include as much detail as is necessary, paying particular attention to the quality of the light and to the colours within the scene, until I am satisfied that I have produced a convincing artistic interpretation. Using acrylics, I paint picturesque buildings, coastal and harbour scenes, landscapes, woodland river scenes, floral art, and paintings inspired by dream imagery.
