I’ve sketched and painted for much of my life and take my inspirational cues from nature and wildlife, as well as having occasional interests in still-life and architectural subjects.
Largely self-taught, I also benefitted from two motivational school-teachers who convinced me I possessed a talent worth pursuing. Following a long career in engineering, including over 16 years as a design draughtsman, I now devote much of my time to my art as well as wildlife surveying (particularly bird-life). It is therefore no surprise that birds as well as the land and sea-scapes in which they live recur frequently in my work.
I developed a love of Purbeck in the 1970s when I climbed on its Jurassic Coast, becoming sufficiently inspired by Dorset’s natural beauty to make it my adopted home county ever since. However, I’ve also been fortunate enough to travel widely, worldwide, and this too is reflected in my artistic output.
My aim is to produce evocative and atmospheric images that convey to the viewer the inspiration that nature never fails to provide me with.
