I have had a passion for drawing and sketching all my life, but I only started painting in the 1990s.

I mainly work in acrylics but also enjoy soft pastels and oils. I still do a lot of sketching and drawing which I find absorbing and often use as the basis of my paintings.

I am always looking for a change in direction so not to get into the trap of being labelled with one particular style. I will continue to paint the subjects that delight and excite me, mostly landscapes and waterscapes, but variety is the spice of life, so I experiment with different approaches in putting ideas down onto canvas or paper. Adding texture and collage to my work has given another dimension to some of my recent work.
