Working as a Artist is embedded within me. 


I primarily use divine linen pulp paper, first sketching in situ drawing with fine line pen or pencil to introduce detail and texture.

The next step is building up the layer of colour with a wash of watercolor or a thicker pigment using gouache paint.

Then if more definition is needed, i'll add pen and ink.

I prefer to work in situ, first sketching the subject required, but working from photographs is possible.

I specialise in landscares, seascapes and I very much enjoy more intamate subjects.

My chosen medeum is gouache, watercolour and finished pen & ink. 

The Coast Road, From Runswick Bay, Cleveland

At the moment I am working on pieces based

around the North East - County Durham where i live and North Yorkshire where I grew up teenager.


I am currently painting on delicious recycled linen pulp paper.

I've returned back to using a technique I used

many years ago, painting with gouache, watercolour and then highlighting with pen & ink.
