About Me

 Since 2005 I have been painting in an impressionist style, landscapes, waterscapes, gardens & rural scenes. I use the beautiful surroundings of my garden studio, in a little corner of East Northamptonshire as my inspiration. Areas of outstanding natural beauty are on my doorstep,including Rutland Water, the Cambridgeshire Fens, and the Norfolk coast. I also paint in Portugal, particularly the dramatic coastline,aquamarine seascapes & dappled the sunshine filled citrus & olive groves.

My Journey

  • 1970 's  Art College : Graphic art and design 

  • 1978 - 2005  Calligraphy with illustration

  • 2005 - present & continuing : Impressionist paintings 



I use each of these mediums according to the subject, my mood or the location.

Using  pastels 'plein air' is a wonderfully direct way to paint, especially on a windy day!
