Leaving Great Yarmouth Art College, I began my art career in a graphic design studio, before joining an advertising agency as an account director. For over thirty years before retiring, my career was in sales and marketing.
Prior to retirement, I was introduced to Pastels. Wow! Drawing in colour! Painting in pastel allows me time to achieve fairly quickly, a painting in full colour. Painting in Oil takes a little longer. I now use both mediums depending on the subject I am painting.
Before moving to Nottingham from Norwich, where the landscape can be flat, but the skies are big, sea or water often feature in my pictures. I still sell by work in two Norfolk galleries and regularly show in local exhibitions. Living in Norfolk, I was a member of The Norfolk and Norwich Art Circle, and The East Anglian Marine Artists.
If you would like to discuss any of my work or maybe a commission, then please call or email me, I would be pleased to hear from you.
