I made a decision this year to return to a previous theme that I felt still had ideas worth exploring. This came about through looking into work books done in Cornwall over the last few years. So I have continued viewing boats from above, as well as stacked (seeing them moored one behind the other). I’ve also looked at houses which surround Cornish harbours, drawing them unsighted without looking at the paper or lifting the pen from the page. Another journey, another relationship, another body of work with an unknown destination.

Born 1946 on the Isle of Wight. The sea has always been important in my work. Trained at Portsmouth College of Art and the Slade School and began exhibiting whilst at college. Lectured in Fine Art for 34 years at City College Norwich, Cornwall College, Barnfield College and Norwich University of the Arts. Retired from lecturing in 2011 but continue to examine art as a Principal Examiner with Cambridge International Exams. I am also lead artist with the SAW Trust (Science Art and Writing in Schools) and participate in drawing workshops.
I have work in public collections at Portsmouth Museum and Art Gallery, Sussex University, Wembley Point London, British Rail and City College Norwich, and work in numerous private collections in the UK, America, France, Switzerland, South Africa, Bahrain and Hong Kong.
