“In the 1960’s I attended Laird Street School Of Art Birkenhead part-time from school art class. During my career in heavy engineering I continued my love of painting and also attended Linlithgow Art Academy whilst working in Scotland.

“Painting oil on canvas was my medium of choice but now, through an interest in automotive custom work I use airbrush and aluminium. I produce work which can be displayed indoor or outdoor in the garden, it is also light and transportable.

“Since my semi-retirement I work from home in my garage ‘studio’ occasionally painting an odd motor cycle and also paint on scrap car bonnets such scenes as beaches, fantasy dragons, scenes of Greece and still life.

“Painting for me is an ever growing learning curve. I love the way colours, light and shade give an ever challenging way of forming three dimensional scenes. And I strive to produce this on two dimensions.

“I am currently experimenting with designs of tribal art and am learning to pin-strip using automotive techniques. I hope to develop this onto a wall or garden hanging scenario.

“My metallic works are clear coated to a standard of automotive finish. From time to time I like to return to canvas and use airbrush and oils in a multi-medium dimension.

“I sincerely wish my work will give pleasure to someone. Thanks for looking and reading! If you are curious about my work, it will be on display at the Wirral Open Studio Tour June 13th and 14th 2015 at Melrose Hall Hoylake. I hope to meet you there.”
