I spend my time painting in my studio in Cambridge when not out and about working on location, or being distracted by playing the fiddle (mostly Irish and Scottish music). I have always enjoyed working on the spot or painting portraits from life. At present I am exploring the possibilities of still life, after a Summer of working outdoors on landscape and garden subjects.

I have been involved in many exhibitions over the years (see list), notably at the Conservatory Gallery in Cambridge during the 80’s and 90’s, the Linda Blackstone Gallery formerly in Pinner for a long period commencing in 2001), the Bow House Gallery in Barnet (from 1991 for several years until the owners retired) the Whittlesford Gallery near Cambridge (several successful years until change of ownership), and the Cambridge Drawing Society (twice a year since 1983). My work has been finding places in people’s collections and on to the walls of institutions and businesses over a very long period. I have recently had work shown in the Book and Print Gallery in Cambridge.

I am pleased to see I have an entry in David Buckman’s “Artists in Britain since 1945” where I am described as “a versatile artist and draughtsman”.
