"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."
Augustus John, R.A.

We spent the weekend in Galloway but the miserable weather gave little opportunity for doing any work. These Siskins drawn from the breakfast table this morning, are all I've got to show from the two days spent there.
I studied illustration at Dyfed College of Art, Carmarthen, graduating in 1984. The works shown on this site are based on observations and drawings made directly from life in the field. The field sketches are mostly drawn using a Rotring Art Pen or a soft 6B pencil. The finished studio pieces are generally linocuts but I have recently started working with drypoints and mezzotints. Further information and more examples of my artwork can be found by following the link below to my website.
