Meet the Artist ...

My main artistic influences come from working outdoors, indeed, most of my paintings are produced either from on location studies or actually started on location, even in winter, with light and colour playing a major role in my work. Favourite subjects tend to involve water, I particularly enjoy painting the English coastline, views from the banks of the River Wey in Surrey and from my narrowboat which I often use as a mobile studio in the summer months.

I have written four art instruction books to date, all published by HarperCollins, three for oil painters and one beginners book on acrylics. As a teacher I run workshops and painting holidays mainly here in the UK, teaching in oils and acrylics. Have a look at my artist courses page for details of the latest events including a fabulous opportunity to enjoy full day's tutored sketching cruise along the River Wey in Surrey from Guildford town centre.

Original works are available through my GALLERIES page where you will find an exclusive selection of works sold via Artfinder. THE WEY GALLERY in Godalming also have a range of Surrey Landscapes and coastal scenes, again exclusive to this gallery.

COMMISSIONS: If you wish to discuss commissioning a painting, then I am happy to travel (within a 50 mile radius) to meet you (free of charge or obligation) to discuss your ideas before taking this further. Please email me to arrange this.
