I am very pleased to have a picture in this year's Discerning Eye exhibition, in November.

I very much enjoyed taking part in recent en plein air events at Dedham Vale and Wells-next-the-Sea.  I have loaded two of my pictures from Wells to the top row of my Landscape page (apologies for inconsistent colour in the beach picture, my photo not the painting) !  I will load a couple more images soon. 

I was delighted to win 1st prize at Windsor and Eton En Plein Air 2017.  Participants painted within the grounds of Windsor Castle on a very wet day in July, it was quite a challenge for everybody.   My picture - 'Impressions from Engine Court' - will be presented to HM The Queen and enter her collection.  A photo of the painting, taken in July, can be seen on my Landscape page.

I was also delighted to be awarded 3rd prize in the Buxton Spa Prize Competition 2017, for a picture called 'Going to the Opera'.  It 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.
