Come and join me on  a journey through my art work. 

I am a self-taught artist, although it was my only ambition at school many moons ago, family intervention prevented me from taking up the place offered to me at an art school.      I have made many attempts through marriage, bringing up a family and full time work to practice as much as I could and to learn through trial and error.   Since retiring I have been able to take up my art work full time.   I use all mediums, oil, acrylic, watercolour, gouache, pencil, printing, etc., and match the medium used to the subject and the mood I wish to create.

I attended evening classes in mixed media and life drawing for several years but gave this up when I started 6 years of study with the Open University for a degree covering the history and philosophy of art combined with a course on Shakespeare and also theory of music.   I found the most fascinating thing about the degree was how much the arts intermingle with each other to produce a "language" which is universal to all.   I was so pleased, having returned to study later in life, to obtain a BA Hons. for my hard work.

I am currently Chairman of the Mersea Island Art Group, and also am a member of Mersea Island Artists, Totham Ten Print Group and Colchester Art Society.    I still attend courses as my philosophy is - you can always learn something more whatever you think you already know.    I attend Life Classes locally once a month, and printing sessions at John Doubleday Studios, Great Totham.   During the summer our print group takes time to go on sketching trips and renew our inspirations.

I have exhibited and sold in many local shows, and with the Colchester Art Society.    I have also been successful it getting a work selected by the Community Choice Panel for the Eastern Open at Kings Lynn in 2012.  A couple of years ago I had to prints shortlisted for the RA Summer Show but unfortunately not hung on that occasion  (I will keep trying).  In October/November 2014 myself and a friend held a four week show at the Digby Gallery, Mercury Theatre, Colchester.   This was very successful.

My website contains paintings, sketches, prints, and handmade crafts, I hope you will find as much enjoyment in looking at my work as I have had in producing it.
