ABOUTI am prolific plein air oil painter and live on the Isle of Oxney in Kent, with my wife Joanna, two teenage children, Bethany & Tobias and our miniature snauzer,Toto. I love painting in all weathers and it has bought great joy to my life! I feel privileged to have met some wonderful painter friends and to have the opportunity of seeing the world in which we live through 'painters eyes' . Whilst painting is a wonderful thing to do it is incredibly frustrating and difficult and NOT relaxing as many people assume. I hope that you enjoy looking at my work and feedback is always welcome!
I am proud to be a member of the Wapping Group of Artists, The Rye Society of Artists and The Plein Air Brotherhood
I have exhibited widely in many Galleries including Turtle Fine Art Rye, Royal Fine Art Tunbridge Wells, The Rye Art Gallery, Enid Lawson London, Redrag Gallery, Galerie Gabrie Pasadena, The Greening Gallery Sag Harbour, The New Gallery Portscatho, The Great Atlantic Gallery Falmouth,The Affordable Art Fair Battersea & Bristol, Richard Scmidd Fine Art Auction Colorado, The Mine Gallery Carshalton, Peter Barker Fine Art & Trees Place Cape Cod. I have exhibited at The Royal Academy Summer Show and also regularly have work in The Mall Galleries in London. My work has been shown regularly with The Royal Society of British Artists, The Royal Institute of Oil Painters, The Royal Society of Marine Painters, The New English Art Club and at The Discerning Eye Exhibition.
