I have been painting for over 30 years and the majority of my work is either painted on site or worked up from sketches.I am a great believer in developing sound drawing skills as it is the basis for any painting activity.My work is a loose realistic with a wide range of subject matter.
I am an exhibiting member at Farnham Art Society as well as Guildford .During 2010 I was elected to become a member of Chelsea Art Society. I am also a member of The Wapping Group of Artists who are a small group of no more than 25 who meet weekly during the summer to paint at various locations along the Thames and in London.They hold an annual exhibition at The Mall Galleries each year.
