While enjoying my gift of drawing as a hobby since childhood I did not begin working in watercolour until my teens and soon afterwards I began to exhibit my work with successful results. Originally from the City of Lincoln,UK, I became a member of The Society of Lincolnshire Artists, exhibiting regularly at the Usher Gallery in Lincoln. Also, after winning the second prize in The Earl of Ancaster’s Willouby Memorial Trust Art Competition, I was commissioned to paint a landscape of the Vale of Belvoir by the Right Honourable Lord Tennyson (the great, great, grandson of the Poet Laureate Alfred Lord Tennyson) who had previously purchased my watercolour work for his Paris home. I have also sold works in various English galleries while exhibiting successfully in Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Yorkshire, and Norfolk where I lived for several years. Then,while living in the Haute Beaujolais region of France my work became very popular while I had a permanent exhibition with an Artisan Galeriste in Propières. I now live in Normandie,France, and in the UK. My portraits are usually commissioned works.
