A bit about me… I was born in the English Midlands and spent my early years in countryside where my father worked in the local dairy and now I find myself with a studio on a dairy farm! My work revolves around the changing seasons and I’m really trying to capture the light and its effects on the countryside around me. I have a real need to paint outside, the feeling of being within the ‘subject’  the excitement and urgency to get painting when I see something I just have to have a go at is so very different to being in the studio painting from a photo however much I love that too!

My work has been featured in The Artist magazine, exhibited with the Royal Society of Oil Painters, The Sunday Times Watercolour competitions. Peter Barker Fine Art, The Brian Sinfield Gallery, and numerous private collections worldwide.

I hold two painting workshops in my local village for oil and watercolours and occasionally paintings holidays for small groups of painters of mixed abilities
