I have lived in the North of England for most of my life. This wild and woolly area has such a lot to offer and I love to paint the hills, the people, the architecture and the industry. My aim is to engage with people, through my paintings. Painting since childhood, being the one subject I excelled at and was encouraged to continue. Most of my work being a huge experiment and an interesting adventure.
“It’s very exciting to finish a picture and share it with you and hopefully make you happy.”
Exhibitions, are too numerous to remember! I was awarded the Dover Prize for the painting, “Bobbing About” which sold during the exhibition. A few years later nother of my paintings “Felines” was awarded runner up in the Dover Show. Although I value these awards, my real joy is gained from the interaction with the people who appreciate my work, which now hang on walls around the globe, all purchased in the North of England.
