UPDATE FEBRUARY 2018



Welcome to my web site,I hope you enjoy looking at my work.  I have just added a number of Pastel, Watercolour and a drawing that I hope you like.

I have just received notification that I have 4 paintings through the first round of selection for The Pastel Society Exhibition at The Mall Galleries in February 2018. I managed to get one in the exhibition but just missed out on another two.

     My preferred medium used to be watercolour but more recently I have been painting mainly in pastels when working outside and mixed media for studio work.

I have been painting for over 30 years and the majority of my work is either painted on site or worked up from sketches.I am a great believer in developing sound drawing skills as it is the basis for any painting activity.My work is a loose realistic with a wide range of subject matter.

I am an exhibiting member at Farnham Art Society as well as Guildford .During 2010 I was elected to become a member of Chelsea Art Society. I am also a member of The Wapping Group of Artists who are a small group of no more than 25 who meet weekly during the summer to paint at various locations along the Thames and in London.They hold an annual exhibition at The Mall Galleries each year. This year it is from 26th February until Saturday 3rd March 2018
