A Midlands born lad, I spent my working life in Telecommunications. I moved with my job to the Westcountry about 21 years ago. Now retired, I have took up painting again after a long period of inactivity. I first laid brush to paper in the 70’s when I bought a small book by the artist John Blockley on watercolour. Although I’ve been painting for many years, there have been massive gaps in between sessions due to other commitments – mainly work related. The last time I painted before was 2003 – many years ago! I took early retirement from the Telecoms industry in 2014 after a long period of work related stress. I’ve found that painting is the perfect antidote to this, although I’ve removed the main cause by retiring. Artists I admire are – Geoff Kersey, Terry Harrison, John Blockley, Ron Ranson, David Bellamy and Rowland Hilder amongst many others. I paint mainly in watercolour, but I also use acrylics, pastels and oils from time to time.
