Biography

I have been for creating things for over 45 years and love variety so I paint, sculpt, make stained glass and ceramics. I use watercolour, acrylic, pastel and ink in my paintings and work from models, plein air and from photos - which I take lots of especially now phone cameras are so good! My work ranges from realism to abstract depending on how I feel or whether it's a commission - George the dog has to look like George the dog! It's great to be able to use bits picked up from every discipline. I think my best work is planned although I often forget the plan half way through a painting. What was I saying? I am a member of the Friendly Society of Artists and we meet monthly to paint outdoors usually in Clumber Park, Notts. We also have an annual exhibition in Castleton, Derbyshire where some of our work is sold. New Members are always welcome. Please email me at [email protected] if you are interested. I am still working part time as a Podiatrist and hope to spend more time 'Arting' when I retire.
