Born and bred in Swanage, Dorset. Lived all my life in Purbeck and have always loved it's countryside. A very keen ornithologist from an early age. One of my favourite subjects whilst at school was art and my natural talent won me many prizes for this subject. My interest in the hobby of Aviculture also began as a young boy and to this day is my main hobby. I specialize in painting birds of the world but paint dogs, cats and other animals on a commission basis only. Most of my subjects are pa...
I recently retired from the British Army after serving for 39 years and, now that I have the time, I have embarked on a part time career as an artist. I thoroughly enjoy my new career and look forward to many years at the easel. Having lived, on and off, most of my life in Castle Cary, I look forward very much to becoming part of the Sherborne Art Club.

I have always painted and drawn, but I trained as a scientist, finally taking up painting full time after 20 years of working in a laboratory.
I paint mainly in oils as this medium produces the intensity of colours I wish t...
I've always enjoyed drawing and painting and joined an art class when I retired. In 2000 I was introduced to wood engraving and immediately became "hooked". I find working in black and white exciting and challenging. For the last 13 years I have exhibited wood engravings in the RWA open exhibition in Bristol as well as some Society of Wood Engravers annual exhibitions, Sherborne art club, Bath and West and other local exhibitions. I was elected a member of the Society of Wood Engravers in 2009.
I have been involved in textile art, applique, patchwork and quilting for many years. For the last ten years I have been painting and clay modelling taking my inspiration from the animals and flowers from country side around me.
I am lucky to have my studio in my garden where I am able to paint and clay model.
I belong to several local groups including art , quilting, clay modelling and gardening.
