“I have been drawing and painting since a child, and lived all my life on the banks of the River Medina at Cowes on the Isle of Wight. I paint all sorts of subjects, but mainly country, rural, harbours, and maritime scenes. Much of may work is painted or sketched on location, and the Isle of Wight provides a rich source of subjects. I paint in water colour, acrylic and oils and I am always experimenting with new techniques.
Ships and Maritime Scenes are my speciality and I have always had an interest in the ships and shipping using the Solent approaching the busy port of Southampton which I watch every day from my waterside studio.
Although I specialise in depicting atmospheric scenes of old shipping, trying to catch the romance of a bygone era, I am equally at home with today’s shipping. My subjects also include the last days of commercial sailing vessels particularly sailing barges and larger sailing ships. Although I like the old days, I also paint modern shipping scenes.
My paintings have gone to many private collections, including those of William H. Miller the American Cruise Lecturer, and author of over 60 books on Ocean Liners and Shipping subjects, to Dame Ellen MacArthur, as well as a commission for a painting and prints for the Maritime Propulsion Journal 'The Motor Ship', the painting being commissioned by them to commemorate their 85th year of publication”
