I was born in Leamington Spa in the UK I now live with my partner of 42 years near Bristol. Since retiring from a life working in the building service industry, I have been able to spend more time painting, writing and developing an interest in photography. In the last few years I have illustrated a book for an author in the States. I have also produced some paintings and drawings mostly of seascapes and people. I have also taken many photographs producing a calendar each year for friends and neighbors.
