Born in Lancashire in 1953, I attended Burnley Art College and Ripon College of Education studying Art and Education.
After early retirement from teaching I began to develop my art practice in earnest, settling on the genre of still life as my speciality.
Drawing has always been at the centre of my practice and I keep my skills honed by regularly drawing from life, both from the nude and the clothed model.
My inspiration comes from traditional still life masters as well as more contemporary artists.
At present, my work can be seen at Look Gallery, Helmsley, North Yorkshire, Hybrid Gallery, Honiton, Devon and from 1st June 2019, The Little Cheshire Gallery, Nantwich, Cheshire.
I welcome visitors by appointment to my studio in Glazebury, on the Cheshire/Manchester border where I have a small viewing gallery.
I am a member of the Altrincham Society of Artists in the UK and the Rockport Art Association in Massachusetts, USA.
