I was brought up in Salisbury, Wiltshire where I attended the local grammar school. I later went on to study Physics at Southampton University. For most of my working life, I was employed by a well-known printing establishment from which I took early retirement in 1999. I now live in Essex.
I have been painting and drawing for all of my adult life but since retiring, I have been able to concentrate on my artistic side. Whilst attending local art classes for experienced amateurs, I consider myself to be largely self-taught.
Acrylics and oils are my favoured media although I do enjoy the occasional foray into pastels and watercolour.
I have exhibited locally in Essex and my paintings can be purchased by contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The price of paintings is kept deliberately low to encourage sales and therefore aid chaities All proceeds from my paintings will be donated to a local charity.
