Based just outside of Bath, I have a busy portfolio career as a part time HR/L&D Manager, FCIPD professional and Business Coach, in addition to being an Art Consultant, Secretary of CDAG, a Pastelist and Oil Painter.
Over the years, it has been my pleasure to have coached and supported a variety of people from all walks of life, including some amateur and semi professional artists, facilitating change, increasing profitability and greater notoriety.
My own development as an artist is supported with study towards a BA Hons in Fine Painting with the OCA, plus enhancing my drawing and painting skills through regular work and exhibitions.
My facination is with realism, luminescence of colour, energy and expression. I am also beginning to explore more freedom in my approach, experimenting with different styles, whilst still endeavouring to achieve an atmosphere of vibrancy to the overall composition.
My subject matter tends to be still life, portraiture of both people and animals, plus a relatively new interest in landscapes. Oils has become a favourite but I also work in acrylics, pastels and other drawing medium. A few examples of my work can be found on the following pages under the appropriate headings.
