Artist's statement

Born in Dersingham in 1958 I started water colour painting during 2000 after a need to occupy my spare time, with the desire to ‘learn something’. I studied for several years with local artist and tutor Mike Tuddenham at the Henderson Art Studio in King’s Lynn.

I have always been required to sketch as part of my long career in construction, in order to convey designs and instructions so that people can ‘see’ what I am trying to convey. I am drawn to watercolours as they hold a freshness and fascination, together with the great ability to allow fantastic detail in the artwork that I like to produce.

My preferred subjects are buildings and structures. I sometimes have to force myself to break away from my working environment to paint the wonderful landscapes and coastline in my local area. During the past 3 years I have undertaken many commissions, from peoples' pets to Tottenham Hotspurs' football ground, from churches to watercraft. The challenge is always welcomed.

My wife Trudi hand-makes an extensive range of greetings cards, which are also for sale from our studio.
