I am a Chartered Engineer by profession and artistic painting is far removed from my past world and so I continue to struggle with the simplification and loss of detail required in so many of my paintings.
I have always enjoyed travelling and so a lot of my paintings are from places I have visited. Venice is my favourite place and is of course a painter’s paradise.
My other love is steam trains, the steam, the smoke and the thundering sound always gives me a great thrill.
My work is mainly in Watercolour but I also paint in oils.
