I have always been interested in painting but could only take it up seriously when I retired. I hope that you will appreciate my work as a semi-professional artist.

Having enjoyed for some years concentrating on mainly figurative images, I am now moving towards more impressionistic and abstract representations, emphasising strong line, shape and bold colour. Sometimes I like to add in a touch of humour as well.

While painting is hard work and an absorbing challenge, it is also hugely pleasurable. I especially enjoy sharing and discussing my work with visitors to exhibitions where my paintings are on display. With that in mind, I do hope that you will contact me with your reactions and comments.
