Paintings and Drawings
Fine Art




Many of my paintings and drawings have been influenced by my fourteen years in Africa and subsequent visits to other African countries, drawing inspiration from the colours, the spirit and the way of life.

My sketches (I never walk around without a sketchbook) often provide the inspiration for a painting. I try to express my personal reaction to a subject, which in my case means I often vary the technique or style. I work in oil, acrylics, watercolour and do collages and drawings.

I regularly exhibit and have held exhibitions in Germany, Iran, India, South Africa, Botswana, Scotland and England. Twelve of them where solo exhibitions. I have won a number of art prizes. My work has been sold world wide.

I am an Associate member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists, the Birmingham Art Circle and the Sutton Coldfield Society of Artists.

For the last 6 years I have run a once weekly life drawing group in my studio. As you can see from the menu buttons I have split up my artwork into four sections.
