Artist Biography:

I am a UK-based artist whose art hangs in homes from the west coast to the east coast of the USA and from the north to the south of the UK. I am so excited to know that my paintings and drawings are bringing pleasure to others after I have enjoyed creating them!

Childhood tales of my grandfather's adventures as a flight mechanic for pioneering aviator Sir Alan Cobham, and my father's involvement with the Fairey Delta project, aircraft naturally became a subject I just had to paint, and led me to join the Guild of Aviation Artists.

Other favourite subjects are wildlife, scenes from the age of sail, and western scenes inspired by holidays spent on ranches in Arizona, Wyoming and Texas and touring the western states of the USA.

My work has been on display at galleries in Lichfield and Walsall.
