Painter in oils
What I paint
Animals, landscapes, flowers, still-life and seascapes. In other words, all things provided by Nature.
I was born and raised on the west coast of Canada, but for the past 30 years I've lived in the English countryside, taking fresh inspiration every day from my Cotswold environment.
Horses are a favourite subject of mine, with racing and polo particular interests.
Why I paint
I enjoy capturing the strength and beauty of the horse; the spirit and character of the dog; the colour and atmosphere of a landscape; the delicacy and vibrancy of a flower.
How I paint
Exclusively in oils, using centuries old traditional methods and materials. I have been greatly inspired by past Masters, and often paint on a large scale, to life size.
