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, settling on the genre of still life as my speciality.
Draughtsmanship has always been at the centre of my practice and I regularly draw 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
Sarah Samuels Fine Art, Chester
Water Street Gallery, Todmorden.
Artdog Gallery, Honor Oak, Forest Hill, London
Duffield Art Gallery, Belper, Derbyshire
I am a member of the Manchester Academy of Fine Arts and the Altrincham Society of Artists
