I studied at Kingston upon Hull College of Art and then spent over thirty years in the design, advertising and marketing industry. During those years I continued to paint but it has only in the last few years that I been able to devote more time to this passion.
For many years I was a member of the local Mountain Rescue Team and have first hand knowledge of Dartmoor's unforgiving nature. But I have seen it in all its’ moods – beauty, atmospheric, exhilarating and oppressive. If you can picture a typical weather inspired Turner painting, then you’ll get the idea.
Here are a few examples of my work. They are all oil on canvas and most are painted using a knife.
Just this last year I have started a new series of the more figurative subject of people and characters from this, and other areas I've recently visited.
Those marked with a red dot have been sold.
