I was born some years ago and now live and paint in Cheam in Surrey, which is about as close as you can get to not being in London whilst actually being in London.
Although I do have some vague recollection of art lessons at school (the details of which I remember nothing at all), I regard myself as entirely self-taught. I started painting some twenty years ago, sporadically at first, but stepping up my output over the last 15 months or so, facilitated by early retirement and the provision of my loft studio, purpose-converted for me by my son-in-law.
Like many artists, I suppose, I started with watercolours but in 2004 I switched to acrylics and this remains my medium of choice. I paint a wide variety of subjects but landscapes and seascapes, often with extravagant sunsets, predominate. I have never painted a bowl of fruit. If pushed to put a handle on my work I would admit to a nod to impressionism. As to all the other stuff, take a look and judge for yourselves.
I have held a number of exhibitions in recent years and am now looking to reach a wider audience.
