Artist Bio

Self Portrait

Based near Leeds in England I work with various media including oils, pastels and ink/metallic. Art is my passion with a portfolio of limited edition prints of my original paintings.

Art is in my blood and I have painted all my life. My formal art education was completed at an esteemed college in Yorkshire.

The style of painting is very individual and unique --- I have developed this style and worked to perfect it over the years.

I show regularly in exhibitions in my home county. My first major exhibition was in Manchester in March 2002, followed by the Corn Exchange, Edinburgh in August 2003 which aroused a lot of interest. Subsequently my work has been reproduced in several magazines.

As a consequence my paintings have been finding their way into private collections all over the world. I have accepted commissions from Italy and America as well as London, and in autumn 2006 I travelled to Hong Kong to complete a commission for an art collector there. Recently sold a painting in Malta.

Greeting cards based on my pictures have also been proving popular.

The art studio is in Ilkley, West Yorkshire. Call into the studio, have a chat and a coffee. Browse the artwork. I will probably be painting in the studio when you call and it is open most days. Also painting and showing their work in the studio are Stuart Hirst, Anthony Smith, John Birch, Gaynor Henaghan, Jaqueline Smith plus images from Michael Camilleri, an artist and photographer in Malta.
