...has been painting pictures for more than 30 years, and became
a full time professional artist five years ago when redundancy
from his job as a newspaper sub-editor and page designer gave
him the opportunity he had been waiting for.
Apart from painting he has also been a keen photographer for many
years, and was a founder member of the Gwent Photographic Society,
which is still flourishing in Newport.
Local scenes, particularly of his home town of Newport, have provided
favourite subjects for his paintings, and other regular 'stamping
grounds' are North Cornwall and the fishing villages of East
Fife, and also St Andrews, the 'Home of Golf.' But landscapes
and townscapes are just one aspect of his work, which also includes
still life, nature studies and figure studies.
He works in a variety of media, including watercolour, pastel
and oil, and has recently been investigating computer generated
art. Landscape work is mainly produced in his studio from drawings
and reference photographs made on the spot.
