Do please explore my work on Flickr, arranged in themed albums: urban and townscape, street scenes, portraits, still life, water, landscape and gardens. My life drawings are best seen in this Google photo album.

I grew up and went to school in Portsmouth and Southsea and my early work was produced around that area. I often painted beach scenes, the docks and the surrounding countryside plus portraits of family and friends. Here is a larger collection of my Portsmouth and Southsea paintings and drawings in a Google photo album (most of which I still have).

For a cv and a summary of exhibitions etc please see this page .

I welcome enquiries about my paintings and drawings but generally do not send work out. Over the years many paintings have found collectors via small galleries, art societies and personal contact. I am not over-ambitious in my pricing. I have a small garden building useful for hanging a changing selection of work and there is a mass of unframed work in portfolios. Some photos of the studio in the garden are in a Google album here. If you want to look at work in the studio that can be arranged and I can normally provide a parking space. Eager to hear about exhibition opportunities and secluded sketching locations near Cambridge.

I have a Threads account plus Instagram and a Facebook page. I am also on Twitter (now X) but I'm likely to use it less in the future.

There's a lot of my work out there so please ask if you want me to identify any paintings that might be mine. People seem to hang on to my work because it very rarely crops up at auction.
