I am a self taught Artist. I work in Oil, Watercolour, Soft Pastel, Acrylic and Egg Tempera. Over the years I have had several one man shows and paintings in open exhibitions including the Chelsea Art Society Open exhibition.
I have had paintings accepted and short listed for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. I paint most subjects; portraits, Landscapes, seascapes, river scenes architecture and even abstracts. My favourite subject is New Zealand landscapes and scenery which I came to love after visiting this marvellous country.
I am inspired by a number of artists. Turner for his magnificent almost abstract oil paintings and his atmospheric watercolours, Andrew Wyeth for his detailed egg tempera paintings, Rowland Hilder for his skillful watercolour washes and the Canadian artist Tom Thomson for his loose atmospheric oil paintings.
