I am Norfolk born but now living and painting in Hull. My painting is influenced by the living close to the coast and working on and by water. I love the big skies of Norfolk and East Yorkshire . I am self taught from 2008 following early retirement. I like to work in Watercolour, Acrylics, pen and ink and coloured pencil. In 2018 I was the overall winner in Hull University's design a travel poster for Hull competition. Since 2013 I have been going to the art group "Art with a Heart" at Hornsea, East Yorkshire. We exhibit our paintings and raise money for local charities. I sell original paintings online.
