I was born in England and received a classical art education before coming to America. Working as an illustrator for the next 28 years provided the opportunity to work in many different styles and media. This broad experience formed the foundation for my fine art career. One of the most satisfying aspects of being a painter is the freedom it offers allowing the imagination to delete, change and improvise. I paint almost every day but not necessarily completing a "painting a day" so this will be a new and hopefully stimulating area in my artistic development.
