Market Drayton, Shropshire

Although I studied fine art after leaving school, I qualified as a Primary School teacher, and spent many years teaching. Only when I gave up full-time teaching was I able to fulfil my dream of becoming "an Artist".
I love experimenting with different media, but I always come back to my first choice of oil paints.
Since childhood I have been passionate about the countryside, and this is reflected in my paintings. I also love the coast, and paint there whenever I can.
I have had my paintings accepted in many art galleries, and have artwork in private collections both here and abroad.
