In London I worked as a Graphic Designer for twenty or so years with short stints in Israel, Australia, Germany and America and Brighton where I had my own design practice.
I continued to sketch and paint landscapes and figures, mostly in pencil and watercolour whenever possible and when a design job in The West Country came up I left London for Bath and here was inspired to paint regularly.
I subsequently fell in love with oil painting and with the beauty of Bath’s architecture and rolling hills. I find that I am happy to immerse myself in the challenges capturing the light and scenery that face me. Being located near to Bath was perfect as I really hate driving so have plenty on my doorstep to paint. (I now live back in Marlow, Bucks). Sometimes I wish I could paint other places like Cornwall or Venice and have done from memory and photos though I guess all painters focus mainly on what is nearby with occasional excursions to new and sometimes foreign lands.
