                                                                                                                  He was born in England and came to the United States years ago. As a child he was always interested in painting and still has his original Reeves watercolor painting set, but he finally got serious about painting after retiring about ten years ago.  


He is inspired by images that have great lighting and strong values.  Most of his inspiration comes from nature, especially as he has traveled extensively both locally and to various parts of the world.  He mostly paints from photographs that he has taken during those travels, but will typically change the lighting, values and often the composition in order to create a stronger painting.


Being an engineer by profession, painting gave him the opportunity to use the other half of his brain and being retired from full time engineering he now has more time to devote to painting which he finds to be a great retirement vocation, often challenging, sometimes frustrating but ultimately always satisfying.  He is basically self-taught, but has taken some lessons from well know local artists.


His paintings are of various subjects including landscapes, locations and portraits. He has had paintings juried into both the Northwest Watercolor Society (NWWS) Open and Members shows, into both the EAFA Open and Members shows, into the Bothell Live Arts Shows, into the Edmonds Arts Festival, Kenmore Arts Festival and into the UNCLAD 2012 & 2016 shows.  He participates in both the NWWS and EAFA public art programs.


His miniature paintings have been juried into the Edmonds Arts Festival, into the Parkland Gallery annual miniature exhibitions in Kirkland, into the Edmonds Gallery North small works show and into the Bothell Live Arts and Kenmore Arts Show where he received honorable mentions.


He is a Signature Member of the Northwest Watercolor Society (NWWS) and is also a member of Evergreen (formerly Eastside) Association of Fine Arts (EAFA).


His paintings are in several private collections in the USA, Canada and the UK.
