Winner of Derbyshire Life magazine, Landscape painter of the Year, 2016-2017
I studied at Derby School of Art in 1973 and Derby College of Art 1974-1978.
My main subject matter is landscapes and coastline, and living near Ashbourne in the Derbyshire Dales, this gives me every opportunity to sketch and paint if the mood and weather conditions inspire me. Using mainly acrylics on either board or canvas, I like to work at speed to capture the moment in one session. This I feel creates a freshness and vibrancy to a painting that is not overworked.
