About

About the Artist

I studied Graphic Design for 4 years in the 1970’s and gained Associate Membership of the Society of Industrial Artists & Designers and of the Society of Typographical Designers. I went on to work in London for companies including IPC Magazines and Royle Print Ltd.

In the early 1990’s I started producing swing signs for pubs, along with commissioned paintings, and this continued when I moved to Falmouth in 1998. I set up my one person ‘traditional’ sign making business in 2011, producing signs made of wood and paint rather than plastic. The business has evolved however, and now I produce far more paintings than signs. I have exhibited at the Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society summer exhibitions and two of my works have been used as membership card images.

My work is usually of wildlife subjects using mixed media; watercolour, acrylic, gouache and pastel and I sometimes use an airbrush for its unique effects. I enjoy photography and try to use my own photographs as much as possible for my paintings, with other elements incorporated. My local Cornish surroundings are a constant source of inspiration, as is Greece where I visit every year.
