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.
All art shows that I traditionally participate in have been cancelled for year 2020 due to the Covid virus. Please consider making an appointment to see my art at my studio. Information for this is on my contact page.
I will be showing my art this fall at the Stanwood Camano Arts Guild gallery located downtown Stanwood on 271st NW.
The event is called the POP UP ART SHOW.
My show dates are October 22 - 24, November 27 - 28 and December 17 - 19.
I will be in person at the shows on October 22nd and November 28th from 11am until 5pm and December 17th from 11 am until 4 pm.
I do presently have one painting on display at the Everett Clinic in Stanwood, WA.
