I am a painter who writes in between pictures. I write poetry (occasionally) and short stories and am currently working on a novel for my own amusement.

I live in the Welsh mountains here in the UK. I’m surounded by nature. Foxes and badgers have made our garden their sanctuary and at night the air is thick with the beating wings of the great barn owls roosting in the old Hawthorn trees next to our cottages.

However, painting is really what I live for and is how I define and express myself. My work is in private collections in France, Australia, Canada, America, Turkey, Tunisia, Kuwait and the UK.
I look forward to reconnecting with old friends and perhaps making new ones on Red Bubble.

Skyscrapers were built two and a half miles high thanks t…

Greed is Good in Gay Paree!

GREED IS GOOD IN GAY PARIS / Recently a friend who lives in central Paris asked us if we’d like to live in her flat and look after her dog for a month while she was away on holiday. Naturally we leapt at the chance. So, at the beginning of this July we found ourselves in the fifteenth arrondissement, close to the Eiffel tower, with a large Alsation to walk three times a day along the banks …
