About Me

I've been drawing and painting since 2008 when I joined the local art group. As a teacher of technology, I have always had a pencil in my hand and I suppose that and my engineering background leads me towards urban sketching and straight lines! I still travel everywhere with a sketchbook close by.
I also love to paint animals but human portraits baffle me. As my art has developed I have tried many media, but always seem to come back to watercolour which I love. My other passion is digital art and I have produced many pieces by drawing directly onto a tablet device.

iPad Art Workshops

Following on from my recent successful run of iPad art courses, I have more planned for 2020 starting with a beginner session on the 8th February. These courses will be delivered at the Haworth Art Gallery in Accrington Lancashire and will be restricted to a maximum of 12 people. 

As well as my stand alone courses, I will also be co-running a series of ' Day of Contrast' courses in collaboration with fellow Studio Artist Catherine Lansdale. On these days, we will be looking at a technique or topic, and replicating it in traditional means and digital media. We have already run one of these sessions and due to the popularity we have decided to roll these out into 2020.
