My background is in Engineering and Product Design with recent years in Electrical and Lighting sales. My hobby of painting has grown in the past 5 years since I started to sell my work on eBay. I have now sold over 700 works with many going to Ireland and the USA. My work is in 12 Art Galleries, the most recent being in Boscastle, Cornwall. I was a finalist last year in the Aesthetica Magazine with the top 40 chosen from 18000 entries. I am listed in the 2010 Who’s Who in Art, and a member of The Association of British Naïve Artists.
I usually paint nautical scenes using Acrylic on canvas. My Naïve style involves blocks of colour with heavy outlines often with several coats of varnish. Another subject is rows of houses some of which are painted onto old roof slates
