I began painting in 1984, as l had alway's enjoyed art even during my school years. Phone/0473018523
My journey started under tuition with my first teacher Ivo Zorzo painting in monochrome then applying glazes
similar to methods used by the old masters.
I then came across my second teacher Gregory R Smith who painted in Tonal realism, he had just opened his school
my next journey had begun! this was to be my path of learning pure painting from life, l learned to see and understand
about tone and painting all subject from life this included studio work starting first from drawing casts with graphite this
was a very exciting time in my training then after 6 months of learning to see with graphite l moved on to painting subjects
in the studio e.g. still life, pottery,glass,metals e.g. silver copper brass, materials flowers etc.....then moved on to portraiture
and figure painting after this period l moved out into painting plein air landscapes l call myself an objective painter! after all
my years of training and learning to see l still enjoy the beauty of nature and what it offers me, l don't find the need to distort
nature in any means, though my techniques in colour and theory have changed some what my journey continues l love the path
l have chosen and l'm always trying to improve all aspects of my painting approach........
Because of family and personal issues during my painting journey l did stop painting for 10 years but l have now started on my
journey again and its very exciting.
Also l have paintings in Corporate collections in England and France
