About The Artist

For most of my life I lived in Surrey. I loved painting from a young age (see oil painting, aged 8 below).

I studied at Croydon College of Art from1960-63 and then worked as a graphic designer until 2007, giving one day a week to teaching in Colleges of Art; Hull, Norwich, Epsom, Croydon and Reigate.

I taught drawing and painting to adults at Ruxley Lane, Epsom and also practiced as a portrait photographer. In 2009, I concentrated on fine art, photography and teaching.

I was a member of the Dorking Art Group and I also still tutor a group in Caterham, where I was born. Now I have moved to Biggin Hill in Kent, just a few yards from Tatsfield.

I paint landscape, portrait, still life; telling a story or expressing an emotion, emphasising light, tone and colour.

I work in a varied style, but mostly "post-impresssionist", or "academic" rendering.

I work both in my studio or 'en plein air'.

Art Tutor

Some are born with a natural talent, (for instance Picasso could draw beautifully at age 7); that applies in all walks of life. However, drawing and painting is often not well taught! My structured methods can bring out the best in any budding artist.
