Fifty years a painter of landscape and non-figurative ideas exhibited by innumerable galleries mainly in and around London. The Paris Salon, Royal Academy and Royal Institute of Oil Painters have all exhibited examples of my work.
Trained in the studio of a professional landscape painter of the Norwich School who was himself the product of Slade training before the First World War, I became heir to techniques and attitudes directly traceable to Constable. It was at the great 1991 Tate exhibition that this became directly apparent to me. By an odd co-incidence I have painted another Stour valley these forty years so far.
Locations that feature strongly in my work are Epping Forest and the Roding Valley in Essex and the Dorset Stour and its mills between Hinton-St Mary and Shillingstone.
