When I first started painting 8 years ago I set myself a few targets.

Firstly I wanted to love what I was doing, and enjoy myself. To be able to lose myself in it for a few hours at a time.

Then, although I knew I would never scale the heights of even the local Art World, I wanted to reach a point where I was, at least, not embarrassed to display my work to others.

I think I've reached that point, and this webpage is one of those milestones.

I love the work of Pissarro, Sisley, Gruppe and Seago and I think that shows. At the same time I would love to be adventurous in the style of the Fauves, and modern painters such as Chris Forsey. I have gone a little in that direction with other media, but my oils seem to stay quite traditional.

With oils I just love to paint clouds,and the bottom half of the picture is very often just an afterthought. However water, boats and trains are also likely to find their way in somewhere as well.
