Thanks to everyone who visited my studio during the Wimbledon Art Fair in November.  You probably gathered that a number of works were in progress and I am sure some of them will feature on this website soon.  2017 was a good year and I am looking forward to 2018.

Following on from my success in the Windsor & Eton plein air painting event last July, a photograph of me with the Governor of Windsor Castle and the prize-winning painting can be found on Wimbledon Art Studios' Facebook page.  The painting is also featured on my Landscape page. 

I was delighted to win 1st prize in the watercolour category at Paint Out Norwich 2017.   I also enjoyed taking part in other plein air events at Dedham Vale and Wells-next-the-Sea, in September.  I have loaded two of my pictures from Wells to the top row of my Landscape page (apologies for the inconsistent colour in the beach picture, my photo not the painting) ! 

My 3rd prize-winning painting from the Buxton Spa Prize Competition 2017, 'Going to the Opera', can be seen on my Urban Scenes page.

Since turning full time as an artist in late 2011, I have been able to produce more work, which people often and kindly describe as beautiful.  It is always based on direct observation and learnt drawing skills.  There is a bit more about me and my work on my Contact page.  I have a presence on social media too.
