Artist Details

Born and raised on the Devon/Cornwall border, I am mainly a self taught artist having no formal training as such, passed my 'O' level GCE in art in the early 1960's and then just painted as a hobby. Most of my inspiration come from the type of art that I admire, which is a loose/semi loose style with mood and atmosphere, which I try to get into my own work, artists that I admire most are JMW Turner, John Constable, the french impressionists, Newlyn school, Edward Seago, Edward Wesson and numerous others, all of which paint to some degree in a way that gives an impression rather than a exact representation.
