| As a child moving from country to country, the one constant in my life, was my pencil and sketch pad. I attended Gloucester College of Art and Technology in the late 70's. After a career in Information Technology and raising a family, I have now settled in the beautiful village of Combe Martin, North Devon. I class myself as a self-taught artist and am continuing to learn each day. I love painting mainly contemporary paintings some incorporates striking metallic textures. My dramatically modern textured paintings are begging to be touched. I am passionate about my art and become totally immersed whilst painting. The Devonian landscape that surrounds me is a constant and limitless source of inspiration. Each painting is crafted until I am completely happy with the result. Signed and dated on the back with a letter of authenisity. All of my paintings are hand painted with care using high quality paints and mediums. Each canvas is varnished to protect the colours and variations in room temperature.
