When I retired from a career in engineering, emanating from my love of inventing and experimenting, I expanded my hobby of woodwork and furniture restoration into woodturning where I began to appreciate artistic possibilities. This led me to discover a new life in painting, firstly with abstract art using the unusual and very colourful epoxy resin to create wildly abstract paintings out of my sub consciousness, and later with acrylics. A series on the cosmos followed together with a further abstract range on asymmetrically shaped canvasses which added a sculptural twist to the work. I then ventured into the world of watercolours which I find uplifting and captivating. I now paint an inspirationally evolving range of subjects: seascapes, sunsets, townscapes, and landscapes. The web site demonstrates the enormously varied style and content of my work from over the last few years.
