My Background

I attended Southampton art college from 1975 - 79 and worked in the design and print industry for many years, during which time I produced artwork, illustrations and visualizations for various clients.  Most of this work was either in gouache or pen and ink.

I first worked with acrylic paint in about 1980 and have favoured this medium ever since.  
 
For about 10 years I worked in the training and education sector teaching art, amongst other things, to adult learners with special educational needs, and giving talks/tuition to local art groups.
 
Nowadays I work from home making paintings of a wide variety of subjects and occasionally giving tuition.  I have not exhibited for some while due to other commitments.
