I started painting when I was about 25 years old, and was inspired by visits to the Royal  Academy Summer Exhibitions around 1965 – 1970. I entered a  painting to the Academy and was accepted. Then marriage and children made it difficult  to continue my paintings so there is a huge gap of inactivity but 12  years ago I was able to resume my passion for painting.

​I  mainly do oil paintings on canvas that attempt to be realistic images,  ranging from urban landscapes to erotica. I used to belong to an  artist collective in Bedfordshire but have recently moved to Brentford  where I have joined the delightful Johnson Artist Community.
