It is always the light that fascinates me. The movement on water, the play of light and the subtle change of colour with every hour of the day, whether it be a racecourse, the sea or a study of Dartmoor.
From the misty mornings of the West Country to the bright midday sun of India or studio lighting at home.
My subject matter is large but I am probably best known for my West Country Seascapes - especially Salcombe.
I paint whatever appeals to me whether it be a horse, a moored dinghy, beach scene, landscape or portrait.
But of course light, composition and colour are all essential and I endeavour to paint with these three principles in mind.
I work quickly from life and always try to catch the moment!
I studied graphic design at St Martins School of Art in the late 60s but have always painted since a child. I have exhibited Nationally on many occasions, with the Royal Drawing Society (age 8!) The RA, NEAC, ROI, SEA Associate Member (winning the Crossgate Gallery Award one year), SWA and The Pastel Society.
I also paint Portraits and Horses, both of which can be commissioned.
