UK based painter, mainly of natural subjects
The River Greta series
Current series of paintings based on and around the River Greta in County Durham. This is an area I got to know over a number of years, wandered over almost daily and grew to love.

Initially training as a land agent, I became interested in art during professional life. This led to studying Scientific Illustration - graduate work featuring in Images 11 the Best of British Illustration 1986 - and employment in the scientific and advertising sectors.
After a few years of freelancing, I returned to heritage and land management - winning a regional Visitor Attraction and two Laurent-Perrier conservation awards - whilst painting wildlife.
I have MScs in Natural Resource Management and Geographical Information Systems, am proud to be a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, and regularly teach art and exhibit my work, often with Jane Young and Geoff Hewitt
