I am a British national, born in Yorkshire in 1961, and now based in North Devon, UK. Though I have always had a flair for pencil and chalk drawing, I began oil painting at the age of 12 and enjoyed early regional competition success and media publicity for my work in the North of England. My passion for figurative painting, influenced and inspired by the works of many classical fine arts painters, from Bouguereau to Modigliani, has helped me develop a true sense of realism and convey both mood and atmosphere in my work. As you will gather while browsing through the galleries of my website, I believe that the nude in particular is undoubtedly the ultimate natural subject in purity of form, and hence it features predominantly throughout. In the words of Shakespeare himself: “The excellence of every art is its intensity, capable of making all disagreeables evaporate, from their being in their close relationship with beauty and truth.”
