  • Artist Resume

  • Artist Statement
    Mainly painting in oils, my exploration of media extends to photography, printmaking, watercolour and drawing. The play of light, night and day, their impact on composition, together with personal experiences, journeys and memories of special places provide sources of inspiration for my work. Lately I've gone on short sketching and photography trips to Dorset and Yorkshire, areas with family connections, whereas painting US neon street scenes after a year spent in New Mexico remains my overriding passion.

    I taught photography and art at Degree, Adult and 6th Form level for 35 years, taking early retirement in 2016. I paint in my garden studio and in the open air.
