Just finished my new art book Pencil and Paint which is available here: www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/1872218
I am a self taught artist, living in Stannington, in the beautiful county of Northumberland, in the UK.
I love to work mainly with graphite, pastels, watercolours and acrylics.
I recently retired from the Metropolitan Police as the senior police artist (March 2009) after thirty years service.
I have since relocated to the north east of England, where I originally spent my youth, now being retired, I am finding I have lots of free time to explore the colour side of my art. I have only recently started painting at the start of 2010, after years of only using graphite, I'm slowly finding my style in using colour, hopefully, it is my aim to try and achieve the detail in colour I can get in pencil.
