I am driven by a lifelong fascination with the noise, energy and drama of all modes of transportation.There is an artistic vein that runs through my family and as a child I was always busy with Lego, making models or drawing.
However, as I grew up I realised that there was exciting work in engineering actually designing and building full size creations. My school and university studies followed that route taking me through a career in Engineering Project Management.
Realising massive structures built to my designs reinforced my creative desires, but as life progressed I was finding myself more remote from 'the real action'.
Rediscovering painting fulfilled those desires and I approach my development as a painter as seriously as I treat my engineering career. In September 2016 I was promoted to Associate of the Guild of Aviation Artists.
I hope that my paintings help you to evoke some of the excitement and energy that I
feel when I paint.
