Biography

I was born in Brighton in 1959. I grew up next to the sea in Hastings and this gave me a love of the coast, water and the outdoors. Throughout my life I have been inspired by the beauty of landscape which I enjoy through walking, cycling and travel.  A degree in History of Art and Architecture at Reading University gave me a fascination for the Pre-Raphaelites in particular and the English landscape painters of the 18th and 19th centuries in general.  Having painted and drawn all my life I started doing many drawings and paintings for friends as commissions after my degree, while pursuing a career in Retail. The paintings have almost always been in watercolour and the style soon became that of hyperrealism, with a strong use of light and colour. It is only in the last few years that I have been able to pursue my passion full-time and this has resulted in many private commissions and displaying in several local art galleries. I am a member of the Kent Painters Group.  I live in Farnborough, Kent.
