I was born in Barking, Essex and spent my childhood in Twickenham, Middlesex. I now live in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey and am married with one son.

I am self taught. My pleasure in drawing and painting began as a child and has remained with me throughout my life. After many years of painting in oils, I turned my attention to drawing with pen and ink and now concentrate on this medium.

I work mainly from my own photographs and have travelled widely across the United Kingdom, from Lands End to the Shetland Islands. I have always loved walking with my family in the mountains, on the cliffs by the sea and in the country and put all my thoughts and feelings of these happy times into each piece of my art.

My mother provided me with constant encouragement and enthusiasm. The work displayed on this website is dedicated to her cherished memory.

My photographs can be seen by visiting Beautiful England
