Being brought up in rural Northumberland as a young child has had a lasting influence upon me, primarily a desire to understand the landscape and the things that survive within it. My two main interests became geology and art. The former became a career the latter a persistent hobby, eventually a degree in Fine Art and now a somewhat all consuming passion.

I love the richness of oil paint and I use fairly traditional methods of painting and glazing techniques which I feel lend a rich depth of colour to the final piece.  I occasionally use mixed media creating drawings in oil, charcoal and pastel. 

​In a hectic world ..I thank you for taking the time to view my site. ​
