I’m in my element when I’m outdoors, and when I’m not in my studio I’m most likely to be found out in my wellies somewhere. My sketchbook is invaluable to me, all my paintings result from time spent observing and gathering ideas. Some of my sketches then provide the inspiration for paintings, which I create in my studio at Halton Mill, on the banks of the River Lune. Others, I prefer just as they are. I sometimes feel sketches have a life to them which try as I might, cannot be improved on by a more finished painting.
Original artwork is available to purchase in my shop. Limited edition prints can be made of any of my work featured here. I also undertake custom artwork and portrait commissions. You can see some of those in my portrait gallery, and find out more about how to buy artwork on my buy or commission artwork page.
