The Artist

Although born in East Yorkshire I am now a fully-fledged Lincolnshire Artist content to paint flora and fauna (along with a few natives) against the backdrop of seasonal change in this diverse county.


The famous French artist Monet said "a painting is never finished" and continued to work on some of his paintings over a period of years. I truly believe in this philosophy, as I often return to my own paintings - I can always see where to place that extra brushstroke. Some of my large complex paintings are the result of more than a year's work.


Many moons ago I started as a raw recruit doing Life Drawing at Newcastle University, then Leeds, and finally Lincoln College of Art and Design (including restoration and gilding course).  I then enjoyed time as Artist in Residence at Lincolnshire Library Services.


After this I lectured and ran workshops/demos at numerous locations and also within my own studio, coupling my love of Antiques, Art and Design as Artist in Residence at Hemswell Antique Centre, where I am to this present day, having established a permanent gallery/studio.

My special editions are produced individually and change over time, reflecting the changes in the original painting.  These high quality ‘giclee’ editions are available on canvas where appropriate, or fine art etched paper and to virtually any size required.  As an alternative, original paintings can be commissioned by speaking to me personally on 07930 130793 (+44 7930 130793) or by emailing me: here
