I began drawing and painting in watercolours at a young age, starting with the scenes of my childhood; growing up on a working family farm in Wiltshire. After leaving King's School in Bruton, Somerset I went to the University of Manchester where I studied French, History of Art and Surrealism. After a long gap working in business, I have returned to painting in watercolours once again and to developing skills in oil painting. I paint in my studio at home but also place great importance on going out to paint en plein air. Like many artists before me, I am working to develop my ability see and put down on paper the beauty in everything that we see around us - shaped by light - and the challenge of capturing transient moments in life and nature.
I hope you enjoy the paintings in my gallery.
