About

Welcome to my website, in here you will find examples of my landscape/seascape paintings and in the blog section my musings about matters Art. Also my online course for beginners in acrylic is available on the "Courses" link above.

I Attended art school at Wallasey College of Art and the Laird School of Art in Birkenhead. Then after jobs in security on Liverpool docks, local government, and the building trade went on to become a computer scientist. Lectured at three English Universities with research work taking me all over the world. Painted as a hobby during this time some 60 years in all. I have attended short courses with leading artists such as Ron Ranson, Paul Weaver, David Bellamy and Robert Brindley RSMA to name a few.

Now retired and living on the Wirral Peninsular. My studio looks out directly over gardens with trees and flowers in abundance. I paint regularly in acrylics, oils and watercolour and exhibit with several art societies and in open exhibitions. For several years now I have run a weekly introduction to painting class at a centre for people recovering from addictions and mental illness in Birkenhead.

I have been accredited as a Professional Associate Art Tutor by the SAA. Although I have a PhD and taught in English Universities for nearly thirty years this teaching art recognition by the worlds largest art society with over 42000 members pleases me a great deal.
