Welcome to my Website

I am a full time artist and have been painting landscapes and seascapes for many years. My favourite medium is watercolour, its immediacy and transparency is hard to beat and I never tire of watching the colours mix and mingle on the paper.  Whenever I can I like to paint en plein air using sketchbooks to capture the sense of place in a quick and vibrant manner. My sketchbooks are hardbound and contain quality watercolour paper so I am able to do full colour watercolour sketches without the buckling and bending you get with cartridge.

There can be few things more challenging and exciting than painting and sketching in front of my chosen subjects.

Whether I am in the heart of the country, perched on a coastal cliff or in the middle of a busy city taking in all the sights and sounds is a pure joy.

Landscapes are my first love but I am at home painting anything from portraits to steam locos.

I travel extensively both home and abroad doing demonstrations and workshops to Art Clubs and Societies

I also arrange a variety of overseas painting holidays to some fascinating locations which include Andalucia, New England and Wyoming, Ireland and Italy.
