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.

My Style

I work in water colour and acrylic.  Once launched, I like to follow the way the painting is developing rather than sticking closely to my studies.
