I have been a practising painter for over thirty-five years, working both en plein air and from my imagination. My passion is for landscape painting, and I prefer to express this in a 'painterly' manner rather than in a purely illustrative or photographic way. I actively engage with the landscape by painting outdoors, rather than relying solely on photographs. I do, however, on some occasions, compose paintings from my imagination and from remembered images.
Over the years I have taught art in adult community education, and have also run landscape oil painting workshops for A Level students in secondary schools.
