I'm a British born Australian citizen now retired to the Bay of Islands in the Far North of New Zealand. I am an amateur watercolour painter, have travelled widely for both military, business and for pleasure which is reflected in the subjects that I paint. I make pen and wash sketches during my travels and develop some of them into paintings later. My work is represented in private collections in a number of countries. I recently wrote, illustrated and published an Amazon Kindle edition of a novella "Night Flight" which I am planning to produce as a graphic novel in the near future.
