Born in 1955 in south Somerset, I have been involved with art circles since the age of 17, when joining my first painting classes. Starting with oils and belonging to a class dealing almost entirely with the local Somerset landscape, I gradually extended my interests to produce work in pastels, acrylics, gouache, coloured pencil and acrylic inks. During a spell in the mid-90's of severe back problems, I began using subject material close to home....the garden. This led on to a steady run of some four years painting floral subjects almost exclusively.
In 1999 I joined a growing number of painters who were putting up personal websites showing their pictures. This eventually led on to the current website in 2001.My annual production is shared between a few offline group exhibitions, one or two selected online galleries and this website.
My former working background is in scientific, technical and analytical laboratory work. I prefer, though, not to do exacting botanical painting. I do not generally follow trends, fads or topics-of-the-moment, working only on subject matter that I can relate and respond to in a personal way.
