I am originally from West Sussex am now residing in Wiltshire where I have been for the last sixteen years. Art has always been a passion mainly drawing and pen and ink in my early years but life, family and work put this on the back burner for many years. From the Royal Navy then onto telecommunications surveying all over the UK, which has influenced my art giving me a passion for scenes and places, buildings I have visited. I have also moved into pastels which I have embraced and enjoy, believing them to more suit my style. However in art we are always learning and evolving as new products become available. I hope that my pictures bring as much joy to others as I have had painting them. There are so many wonderful places in the world, I hope to capture as many as I can.
