I’ve always been enchanted by animals, beautiful and quirky, large and small, domestic and wild.   In 2009 our cockerel in our garden in Dorset naturally became my first subject for painting since early school days.    Years of horse-riding through stunning Dorset countryside plus fantastic experiences of safaris in East Africa presented me with further inspiration and material.
I'm a self-taught artist, working with acrylic inks which I love for their vibrant colour and forgiving nature.    My main career, spanning nearly 30 years was in IT, but having at last picked up a paintbrush I quit IT and the City and am now enjoying painting commissions and works for exhibitions. 
My commissions are most often of much-loved animals including cats and dogs, prize-winning farm animals and horses.   Capturing their individual character is a wonderful challenge and a very key part of my reward is seeing my customers happy.
I moved to Polruan, near Fowey, in October 2013 and joined the East Cornwall Society of Artists in February 2014.
