I was born in Penzance Cornwall and left school at 15 to work on a farm overlooking Mounts Bay. In 1956 I joined the Royal Air Force and returned to Penzance in 1991.

Brilliant colours and rich detail are characteristic to my landscapes which have a strong sense of place; England especially Devon and Cornwall. My work has been exhibited throughout the United Kingdom and Europe and is in private collections worldwide.

A strong influence is the English country poet John Clare (1793-1864) who said ”a poet is born not made” and I believe it to be the same of artists.

I really would like the paintings to speak for themselves…
