I have been a designer, teacher and lecturer throughout my working career, and always an ‘Artist’. Drawing and painting since my earliest days. My paintings have covered many genres, but of late mostly landscapes, inspired by the surrounding beauty of the area in which I live.
Totally immersed in the local art scene in my home town and surrounds. Working closely with Christchurch and District Arts for the past 25 years, Currently Chairman, and the Christchurch Arts Guild, previously as Chairman, now their President.
I became one of the first members of the Society of Floral Painters when they formed in 1995. This followed with acceptance as a full member of the National Society of Botanical Artists a year later. For many years, exhibiting at the Westminster Central Hall in London, and a number of National Trust Locations.
I have exhibited my work in London, Sweden, France and Jersey. My paintings are now in private collections in America, Canada, Australia, Japan, Sweden as well as the U.K.
Solo exhibitions include The Red House Museum, Christchurch. Regent Centre, Christchurch. Lyndhurst Centre, New Forest. Dorset Craft Gallery, Bournemouth.
Membership of numerous Societies.
