I am a British artist and illustrator, living in rural France with my partner, Alex, Ellie and Monty (dog and cat). The French countryside is a wealth of inspiration for my work. When I am not painting, I am walking with Ellie.
For the past 33 years, since training in Liverpool Art College, I have continued my art practice, as well
as working professionally within the arts, in both publication and re-painting. Working in commercial
areas such as gifts, jewellery, pottery & editorial and Licensed on products, Worldwide.
In 2014, I created several illustrations based on the Tour de France.
In Spring 2014, I was featured artist on BBC Countryfile.
I regularly write articles for Leisure Painter Magazine.
I have worked with the Co-operative on publications.
I work on larger scale projects for Patagonia, creating window illustrations.
You can see me painting the George Fisher window in Keswick, here.
I primarily work in watercolour, ink pen, gouache, acrylic paints on Fabriano watercolour paper. I also like to combine traditional with digital.
Each day, I post a 'Tweet of the day' on twitter.
