I couldn’t imagine my life if I wasn’t drawing and painting, and now I make my living from it. How lucky am I? I have been painting full time for over 25 years. I am largely self taught, which has helped me to develop my individual style. I work mainly with a mixed media technique, using fine nibbed dip pens with indian ink and watercolour. I love to paint cityscapes and street scenes, the more detailed the better. The fine pen work provides a beautiful architectural feel to my paintings, combined with warm washes of vibrant colour. I also enjoy painting more serene seascapes, which brings a more traditional aspect to my work.
