I was born in Essex, England in 1944 and immigrated to Canada in 1957. Now residing near Kelowna, British Columbia. Early influences on my style and career included John Constable and J. M. W. Turner.
Later, the work of the late French minimalist Nicolas De Stael played a significant role in my development as a painter. My landscape paintings are abstracted to simple forms relying on texture and tonal variations to create drama.
My still-life and flower works are painted with a palette knife and sometimes brush in acrylic either on canvas or panels. I build the shapes of the abstracted flowers, not being at all concerned with the type of flower, by layering subtle changes in tone and color value, creating my style of still-life. Most landscapes are painted with a brush although occasionally a palette knife may be used for effect.
I've had solo and group exhibitions in Vancouver, Whistler, Seattle, Charlotte, NC, Perth, Australia and others.
My paintings may be found in many corporate and private collections across the world.
I'm a member of Landscape Artists International, International Society of Acrylic Painters.
