Born in Fence Houses County Durham in 1958, son of a miner. Closure of the pits in the area and nationalisation led to a move to Nottingham where he was brought up from the 1960s.
He was always encouraged and inspired to art by his father, becoming a self taught natural artist, A love of colour and movement always inspiring him.
"I love water as it changes in colour & shape, adding interest to the main subject sometimes. What ever the subject and style, where ever the inspiration comes from, either places visited imagination a moment memory the sources are endless, that direct me to paint."
Works in oils tend to be more detailed and traditional in style whilst works in acrylics tend to be more vibrant and slightly towards abstract.
"My styles as I evolve mingle and hopefully bring both together. In short 'Realistically Abstract'. I hope to always bring colour, depth, feeling of the subject chosen and interest."
Boring eh? Look enjoy. Smile.
