I am a figurative artist and tutor working predominantly in 2D. I draw and paint the landscape, animals in groups and the human figure. I am primarily interested in working from direct observation of the subject and concentrate on drawing and painting using graphite, coloured pencils and oil paints. In addition to painting and teaching regularly from my own studio on the outskirts of Bungay, I travel widely demonstrating art products and skills to arts organisations. I also run workshops and courses – both independently and for art groups and commercial art organisations across the UK. I regularly write articles on art instruction and have contributed to several books on drawing techniques. I have my own double DVD “Yes, You Can Draw!” I am a member of the Harleston & Waveney Art Trail and open my studios each year.
