I was fortunate to spend four years at the Byam Shaw School in London gaining my NDD there in 1965. I had a watercolour accepted for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition a few years later which was sold from the exhibition.
In 1981, we moved to Toronto and I became a member of the artist’s co-operative gallery, Gallery 306, where I had a number of solo exhibitions as well as group shows in Ontario. I have also had exhibitions in London, Bahrain, and Montreal.
We moved back to the U.K. in 1996 and live near Checkendon.
I like to paint places I know well and am inspired by nature, in particular water – rivers and lakes. I compose from a number of sketches and quick colour studies and also some general photographs of the area. I am trying to achieve the character of a place in a particular light.
