| I am a professional artist and art tutor based in Sussex and I paint animal portraits, landscapes, seascapes and whatever else I fancy. I did my art foundation course at Chelsea and my fine art degree course at Brighton completing in 1983. My paintings are bright and contemporary and they get attention wherever they go. I am not arty, deep, mysterious, messed up, young, "emerging" or remotely likely to get famous - I just like painting. I am inspired by music, cake and practically anything I look at. I plan to pretend I am dead at some point in order to sell more paintings.
