I am a self-taught artist specialising in oil landscapes and still life. Learning by trying has been supplemented by various adult education evening classes, the most successful of which was at Epsom and run by Shuhua Jin.
I like to enter competitions as they give me a focus in both subject matter and timescale. I’m hoping that I’ll have enough motivation!
In September 2005, I took part in Granada TV’s “A Brush With Fame”, a national portrait painting competition. Although I was excluded in the first round of the Brighton heat, I found it a very invigorating and motivating experience. Meeting up with other artists from all walks of life was highly enjoyable. The event knocked me for six; I was absolutely shattered when I arrived home, only adrenaline had kept me going. I also enjoy being part of Pintar Rapido most years; an outdoor painting competition held in London, Amsterdam and Glasgow.
Commissions accepted. I can also provide 1-2-1 instruction in oil painting. Please use the Contact page to get in touch and discuss your requirements. I'm also happy to provide private viewings by appointment; again, use the Contact page.
