Reference material is gathered on location through sketching and photography. Many visits to Africa have given me a wonderful collection of Big Game images to work with. Our English wildlife is also a continuous source of inspiration. Being a member of the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust enables me to spend much of my spare time sketching at the Arundel Centre. Some years ago I had the opportunity to become a fundraiser and Artist in Residence for the trust – What a great way to give something back and help such a worthy cause. I have always admired the artwork of the founder, Sir Peter Scott.
I exhibit at Country Shows and Fairs – Art society exhibitions and at the Arundel Wetlands Centre. Exhibiting at the Montague Gallery in Worthing gives me a chance to show my work ‘straight from the easel’. It is fabulous to be part of such an inspiring environment surrounded by so many talented local artists.
I paint in Oil – Acrylic – Pastel – Watercolour – Graphite and enjoy Chinese Brush Painting.
