Born in Sheffield, UK, I have been painting for as long as I can remember - or at
least since I was about ten years old. Over the years I have painted a variety of subjects ranging from
still life to portraiture. In the early days I used only oils, but later discovered the
strengths of pastel painting. Whatever the medium or subject my work has always been figurative.
I believe my style of working is better suited to pastel painting, which I intend to do more of in the near future. My current interest in landscape in oils is because it is a subject that I have neglected in the past. I am attempting to develop a free style of brush work, mostly inspired by the work of Edward Seago.
