I have been producing sketches and watercolours all my life, but its only since taking early retirement in May 2018 that I have been able to devote more time to my little hobby. I have a distinctive style that I have built up to capture the effects of light and shade on brick and stone and my love of travel to collect subjects that will lend themselves to this particular skill. This has led me to France….notably Provence and the Loire Valley, Italy and Egypt on many trips to pursue my love of all things Egyptian, of which I have made a lifetime’s study.
From the simplest of rural subjects to some of the most recognisable monuments , that same pursuit for architectural accuracy spurs me on to new projects.
You will now be able to see me at exhibitions and craft fairs, where I like to sit and paint in front of my audience, showing how I produce the fine detail that you too can achieve in your own work..
I will put the same effort into capturing your own home as I would for any French chateau. Any of the watercolours can be obtained in print form and can be made to measure for the size that will suit your wall space. Keep an eye on the news page to see where you can find me at my latest exhibition.
I am a former member of the SAI and a current member of the SAA, The Kent Painters Group and the Tonbridge Art Society.
