|My range of art has encompassed technical illustration, cartooning, soft pastel portraits of pets (mainly dogs, cats, horses or other domestic pets) and mixed media, semi abstract outdoor scenes and flowers. I mostly use acrylic paint and inks as well as oil and soft pastels. The paintings are produced on either watercolour paper, mount board, MDF, pastel paper or canvas. My studio is at my home in Wokingham, Berkshire in England. Prior to retirement, during my career in Export Sales, and as photography has also been a lifelong hobby, I have had the opportunity to photograph and sketch many interesting scenes in several countries throughout the world. Many of the subjects I have painted are based on those records and images.
