I was born, raised and educated in the north of England and immigrated to North America in 1967. Living briefly in Canada for one year before moving to the USA.
I retired from an engineering career in 1999 and began oil painting in 2000. My initial exposure to painting had been as a senior in high school. However, due to pressure from a parent, who was reluctant to support any starving artist, an invitation to attend art school was rejected in favor of an engineering college.
Having a preference to paint landscapes, many of my paintings have been created on site using the "Plein-air" technique.
I am presently an active member of the Stanwood Camano Arts Guild and the Stanwood Camano Roaming Artists in Washington State.

I will be at the location personally every Sunday in April from 10:00am Until 5:00 pm. Hope to see you there.

I do presently have one painting on display at the Everett Clinic in Stanwood, WA.
