After completing a B.A in Art & Design, specializing in Graphic Illustration and Film Animation at Liverpool College of Art I decided to opt for a regular income and finished with an A.T.D from the same venue. I taught Art and Design for 35 years in Liverpool and Wirral schools. I covered most mediums including print, photography, mixed media and Critical Studies to Advanced Level.
In my own work II have tended to concentrate on imaginative themes based on my own interests which include motorcycling, longbow archery and cats!
In recent years I have based much of my work on direct observation of my immediate environment, still life and lots of life drawing. (back to basics eh!)
I am interested in all aspects of the visual arts and have practiced most media.
I have a particular interest in the effects of light and form and particularly admire the work of 16th and 17th century artists of the Low countries.
I work in a wide variety of mediums including ink, scraperboard, pastel, watercolours, oil paint and lino print. I usually work on a small scale, rarely bigger than 16×12 inches.
I generally work to private commission and have exhibited my work at venues in Liverpool, Wirral and regularly at the Williamson Art Gallery.
