Occasionally, in life, there are moments when an event changes your direction. Just over a year ago, whilst helping to run a fundraising event locally, I decided to see if any of my paintings would be considered good enough for people to buy. I sold 5 with 2 commissions!

Two people had a great influence on my artistic journey. My father was a gifted painter whose creativity was rudely interrupted by the Second World War.
Peter Tuck - our art tutor at college in Hull - gave us a great syllabus of creative ideas. When viewing my end of college exhibition, the invigilator said,' You look as though you have had fun!'

Producing a painting takes an artist through a myriad of emotions, ranging from exasperation to delight. But,overall, it is immensely enjoyable and I hope you enjoy looking at my works.
