A little bit about me

I was born in Stourbridge,West Midlands in 1955,painted from a very early age,attended Stourbridge Art College,started out in graphics and as a studio technician in Hay on Wye and Jersey.Returned to the Midlands to concentrate on my painting.I have been a professoinal artist for ten years.I have a studio/gallery in Hanbury,Worcestershire,but also exhibit in many galleries around the country,as well as selling abroad.My work is mainly landscapes but also do commissioned portraits.
My work is involved in two prcesses,one being "plenn-air" or outside on site and the studio work which has a more considered approach.
What I try to create in my paintings is a mood and atmosphere,with the use of light and colours in juxiposition to each other.
Most of my landscapes are of the Worcestershire countryside,especially around the Malvens,but I also work a good many weeks of the year on the North Yorkshire coast,in and around the Whitby area.
Teaching is also apart of my makeup.
