Born in Middlewich ,Cheshire, I studied art at both Stoke on Trent College of Art and the Royal College of Art.
After 30 years running my own design business and some years in retail I now give most of my time to painting and drawing. My subjects are anything and everything from landscape to still life, from wildlife to portraits.
I use traditional materials-oil paint,watercolour, pastel, pen and ink and pencil. My pictures are figurative but not photographic. I try to give them a painterly quality that reads from a distance but also invites people to look closely at the technique.
