Originally from London, I now live in a small village not too far from Norwich in Norfolk, East Anglia in the UK. I am mainly a self-taught artist although I did have a little formal training in the 1960’s. I work mainly in watercolour and coloured pencils with occasional use of pastels and acrylics.
As a Teaching Assistant to an Art Tutor, I taught basic watercolour techniques to beginners at local Art Classes for 8 years before deciding to concentrate fully on my own work two years ago.
I have had some success exhibiting my work in and around the local Area for the last 10 years, I am also a member of The Guild of Artists and Craftsmen.
My favoured subject to paint is wildlife and I try to take as much care to detail as I can.
I believe that we never stop learning with art and with every painting that we do, we learn a little more.
Thank you for visiting my bubblesite and I hope that you enjoyed looking at the paintings here as much as I enjoyed producing them.
Just wanted to say a very Big Thank you to everyone who has commented on and favourited my work since I joined Redbubble a couple of months ago.

My old Canon Powershot A420 had been playing up for over a few week, so I managed to talk my other half into letting me buy a new Camera. I bought a Panasonic Lumix 12mp and couple of new SD cards for it. Got it home and tried to install the software disc and it froze halfway through. Tried to uninstall it to have another go and it wouldn’t un-install. After a very lengthy telephone conv…
