Born in a small mining community, I have always drawn and painted from an early age.  It wasn’t until my ceramics teacher at school told me I should go to art college that I considered it as a future profession.  It opened the door and paved the way for a 45 year career in art.

I now paint purely for pleasure.  I love looking for the light and putting myself in the painting, seeing the flow of brush strokes and mixing of colours to produce a painting with feeling.  I am always looking for the next step to expand my thoughts and push my creative ideas.  I never stop learning.
