About The Artist

I am an artist based in Chobham, Surrey. My artwork ranges in a variety of media, from oil painting to tempera, watercolours, acrylics and mixed media.

It is mainly figurative, though some of my pieces can be abstractions of figurative forms. I work on objects, single items or still life and landscapes.

I do not mimic reality and look for a personal vision of shapes and colours sometimes disregarding proportions. Impressionistic views merge with a surrealist vision in my work and a poetic interpretation of reality, sketching and drawing, are always my first steps towards a finished work. Then I choose the media that
best suits the composition. Sometimes I try different media for the same subject, to see which one interprets the form and thought I mean to convey.

The picture needs to speak to the viewer, communicating multiple sensations and engaging them in the story. Then I choose the media that best suits the composition.

I am also a writer and my inspiration, both in writing and in painting comes from where I live, what I do and the people I meet. It can be a view of the English landscape, flowers on a wall, working in my back garden, or an encounter. I am also very much inspired by travels, the changing of seasons, exhibitions and memories.

I think most of my work is a revisitation of memories of what I saw and experienced in the recent or distant past.

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.

About The Artist

I studied Fine Art at Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts, graduating in Painting and I have continued to paint ever since. When my children were young, I started to glass-engrave, as this didn’t need the same commitment as a large oil painting. I still continued to paint, but to a lesser degree and mainly watercolours.

I have also taught Life Drawing and Basic Design part-time in various colleges of Further Education, mainly to Architecture and Interior Design students.

My paintings are based on Realism, Observation and Recording. It might be a particular event or a sequence of events, a time of the year, an unusual happening or just something I think is beautiful or interesting. I want to show ordinary scenes in a compelling way; I want to draw the attention to what are quite often everyday occurrences.
I paint in Oil, Acrylic and Watercolour and also take the occasional sculptural commission.

Art Group / Exhibitions

Surrey Border Art Group
I run a portrait workshop
I have exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, with the Royal Institute of Oil Painters and with the Sussex Artists.

About The Artist

I specialise in creating bright, vibrant pastel paintings, using intense colour, lighting and atmospheric effects, which enable me to transform simple subjects into the magical. I focus on Italian, Mediterranean and English themes, from landscape to more close-up studies of windows, doorways, floral and still-life subjects. I also enjoy working in pen and wash

Born in 1952, I come from a long line of artists and can trace my ancestry back to Richard Wilson, the well-known 18th century English “romantic” painter. I studied at the City of London Polytechnic and the Wimbledon School of Art before embarking on a career as freelance artist and illustrator.

In addition to book-jacket illustration, I have produced work for television, films and museums, and have painted murals for commercial companies, and more recently, as a Lecturer in Art and Design.

My first love, however, has always been landscape painting. Capturing the effects of lighting and atmosphere, enables me to turn simple objects into the magical, always with the intention to convey the very essence of the subject, rather than just merely state the obvious.

Work has been exhibited in various galleries in London and the South East.
