For many years, I felt that I was painting to please others. I would look at the paintings of artists, Constable mainly, and try to paint like them. I was also driven to paint scenes that others liked which, although I enjoyed doing, did not satisfy me. I was also driven to try and make an exact likeness that was almost photographic.
In 2012 that all changed. I was encouraged to make a change and with my art being integral to me, I decided to paint as I did before I was encouraged to be traditional in my style. I moved from oils to acrylics and started painting in a way that I did when I was a young boy (fifty plus years ago) using poster paints on my bedroom walls, and Humbrol model paints on brown wrapping paper.
I have a selection of prints, cards and paintings available in the shop.
