Additional Info

I have just moved to Sutton Bridge this year from Ireland where I lived for 25 years. I was born and educated here in England and went to art school in Oxford ( the Ruskin School) and London ( The Royal Academy Schools) .

I worked for many years as a lecturer and Course Leader in Arts, Design and Animation Courses in Ireland at the National Film School and art schools in Dublin. Among my ex students are Oscar nominees and winners for animation. ( Avatar, Gravity, Secret of Kells, Song of the Sea)

I like teaching people to draw and paint, I believe that with the right teaching anyone can draw.

Since taking early retirement in 2013 I have been focused on my own painting and have exhibited in two major exhibitions in  Portugal, and last year in Oxford. I am currently working on a series of landscape paintings of this area of Lincolnshire and the adjoining counties. If you see a yellow skoda parked in unlikely places on the edge of fields that is probably me.

I am enchanted by the unusual and beautiful landscapes here in Lincolnshire and the more lavish ones over the border in Norfolk. I am always interested in teaching and exhibiting. Please feel free to contact me if you have any ideas or comments on teaching or collaboration or the paintings.

I also paint commissions and have a body of work for sale which I am happy to show you online or in person. I am currently looking for a large venue for an exhibition which does not necessarily need to be an established gallery.
