Art and music have always fascinated me and I have been involved with both for most of my life. I have drawn and painted from a very early age and have created a diverse range of artwork in watercolours, oils and acrylics including portraits, landscapes, cityscapes (such as the two featured in the profile photograph), nudes, narrative works, abstracts and semi-abstracts. In my professional career I worked with composers, songwriters and performers, so musicians and music, past and present, have inspired a large number of my paintings. Actors from stage and screen also feature in the portraits included in my portfolio. I have no particular style and simply paint how I am feeling when I start a new work and although I give much thought to what I am attempting, emotions and spontaneity frequently take over and the results surprise me! I have exhibited for many years in London and the South East and sold large numbers of paintings in the United Kingdom and abroad. Many commissions have also been carried out and are welcomed. Painting gives me enormous pleasure and I hope others enjoy what I create. Virtually all the income I receive from sales is donated to the NHS, Mental Health and other charities.
