I was born in Yorkshire 70-odd years ago,

and developed twin passions of art and animals.

We moved to Norfolk in 1971, and now retired,

I can indulge in painting the things

which inspire me and interest me most
















I trained as a Graphic Designer, but now specialise in paintings of wildlife, domestic animals, pets and people, working in pastel, oils, acrylics and watercolours

Some of my paintings have been reproduced as Limited Edition prints and greetings cards,

and a few of the original works are available to discerning buyers

My work has been exhibited in the UK, and commissioned works have gone to various places  in Europe,

North and South America, Scandinavia and Australia


I am happy to consider commissions for paintings - please get in touch

to talk about what you would like
