Staffordshire, United Kingdom
Having studied fine art and graphics at several colleges gaining my Dip AD and ATD my career working as Editorial Artist with Northcliffe Newspapers PLC has kept me constantly in touch with all aspects of art and design.
Painting in oils, acrylics and watercolour my aim is to maintain and develop an impressionistic style which I try and portray in my landscape and architectural paintings.
Now retired and away from the stress of deadlines I have plenty of time to pursue my life-long hobby and continue to experiment with different techniques and subjects. I love to exhibit my work and teach painting to adult students at my local college.
