Born Christmas day 1945, my love of art stems back to my childhood when I would do chalk drawings on pavements...art materials were in short supply in those days!
Art school 1959-1962. This was a marvelous time for me as I studied amongst like minded people and the emphasis on learning to draw & paint was a rigorous routine.
My final 2 years were spent learning the complexities of commercial art, illustration & cartooning.
I spent most of my working life in the graphics, sign & screenprint industry.
I now paint full time in my studio at Vernon Mill in Stockport and I am a member of the Vernon Mill Artists.
Although my work is based on the classical style of landscape painting, I have spent the last twelve months developing an additional new approach which is influenced by my love of cartooning and also incorporates various sign writing techniques.
The new work has generated much interest and quite a few sales!
