Welcome to my world as a Colourist painter. Explore life enhancing Expressive Figurative paintings, drawings, and amusing adventures of my life and travels as a working artist.
At Leeds College of Art I studied Bauhaus principles with the Slade's Derek Hyatt, and recently received inspirational advice from Tony Eyton RA for my Master's.
I work directly from the subject together with studio techniques.
As well as exhibiting just now I'm developing a body of work done on location while travelling the world as Artist in Residence on Cruise Liners.
I hope you enjoy my work, which has copyright status.

Sir Roy Strong, pictured here, is delighted with his portrait. I painted him in shorts carrying bottles of bubbly to his Loggia at Laskett Gardens.
“It’s just like me and full of happiness, reminding me of happy times at Laskett, he said, taking down a picture by his friend Cecil Beaton and replacing it with mine!
Anthony and Margaret Evans bought ‘Cathedral Gardeners’.
“It’s a treat for us to see ourselves pictured relaxing and enjoying the gardens”, said Anthony. “The children will love it” said Margaret. “We’re going to enjoy it on our walls first” joked Anthony. “You’ve even got the right species of tulip I planted!”
Once Hereford Cathedral’s Canon Chris Pullin spotted my Church Street painting with his house on the corner, he ‘had to have it’.
Thanks to all customers friends and visitors for making the show (and the Private View Party), truly memorable!
