I have been a professional artist since 1971 and am self-taught. I first exhibited my work on the Hyde Park railings at Bayswater, central London, where I realised my work had a public appeal. A lifetime love of boats and the sea brought me to the south coast, where I now live and work. I made a name for myself in the art world as a traditional artist and my work has been sold in many galleries throughout the UK. In developing my style of traditional marine art, I have spent time crewing various sailing vessels, including The Sir Winston Churchill (a top sail schooner) and Thames barges. These experiences have helped with my understanding of the rigging and working of old sailing ships. Further to my traditional work, in recent years I have developed more contemporary styles and techniques, moving with current trends within the art world and appealing to a much wider following.
