It is unusual if a day goes by without me picking up a paintbrush, whether to paint oils or watercolour. Although it is my full time profession, it is never a chore to go to work. I feel lucky to have found art or it found me. Either way it inspires me to learn, I never rest easy in the fact I can paint and always look to ways to improve. I take inspiration from past artists such as John Singer Sargent to more contemporary living artists who also paint watercolours in a modern loose atmospheric style.
My studio is in West Wales, however for a large proportion of the year the great outdoors is my main studio, particularly the South of France. I travel with my wife Kate in our camper van with my art materials in tow, stopping and painting as we go. When I am painting outdoors I really feel I am an artist.‘en plein air’ as the French say!
I am self taught, fifteen plus years in and still learning, I once read that ‘it is the longest apprenticeship to become an artist’ Great news for my collectors as there will always be new and exciting works to look forward to.
My work can be found in galleries around Wales and in collections all over the world, which include recent collectors such as the National Trust.
I share my knowledge with other enthusiastic artists through my workshops and one to one tuition. I have several teaching videos on youtube which can be viewed for free.
I am always happy to discuss an idea you may have, I paint many commissions and many subjects in all sizes throughout the year.
I keep a blog on my website so you can follow my travels through France this summer
