I trained at Southport School of Art and worked for the Calico Printers Association as a designer colourist. The use of colour theory in all my paintings stems from this early experience. In 1984 I gained a B A Hons. Lancaster University degree in Fine Art and English.
I have published articles on Art in The Times Higher Education Supplement and The Artist Magazine.
I have exhibited in galleries in Lancashire, Birmingham, Nottingham and South Wales and have held 6 solo exhibitions in Swansea. My original watercolours are in private collections in the UK, Australia, America and Japan and my published prints are sent all over the world.
From 1992 I concentrated on building up my Art Publishing Business. I have published over 150 images of Wales and 29 of England concentrating mainly on Shakespeare country and the Nottingham area. In 1993 I published my first ‘Wales in Watercolour’ Calendar which was firmly established as an annual publication for 15 years.
Working now mainly in oils I enjoy making a series of paintings on a similar theme.
I am a Fellow of the Nottingham Society of Artists and Chair of the Spotted Dog Art Group based in Beeston and Chilwell. I work from my home & studio in Attenborough Notts.
