Presently I use pastels, acrylics and water-colour for landscape & portrait painting and drawing. I also love figure-drawing and joined the North of England Art Club especially for evening life-modelling sessions.
I started teaching and practising art as a painter and studio ceramicist in London in 1978. I have been accepting commissions, selling and exhibiting artwork ever since. The scale of the North East landscape and the tender strength of the people I live and work with, completely dominates my art - it has blown me away.
I am currently working on entries for competition and exhibition in 2018. I welcome commissions and offer art tuition for support preparing portfolios and for exams. Also, tuition in portraits / self-portraits using acrylics, pastels or pencil.
