Born in Hampshire (1952), I’ve sketched and painted during much of my life. As well as spells living in Scotland and Gibraltar I’ve travelled widely in pursuit of my interests in the great outdoors, including mountaineering, sailing and wildlife, particularly birds.
I developed a love of Purbeck in the 1970s when I climbed and bird-watched on its Jurassic Coast, becoming sufficiently inspired by Dorset’s natural beauty to make it my adopted home county ever since.
Following retirement from a successful career in engineering I’ve keenly sought to develop my interests further, as a voluntary wildlife surveyor and progressively improving my artistic skills.
I’m largely self-taught, my only art training being at school where I benefited from one particularly motivational teacher who convinced me I possessed a talent worth pursuing. My inspirational cues derive from a love of the natural world and I seek to develop personally unique styles and techniques depending on whichever medium I select. I mostly favour oil and acrylic and work both outdoors and in my studio in Purbeck.
I aim to produce evocative and atmospheric images expressing nature’s subtleties, be they purely landscape or involving wildlife.
