become what he had always wanted to be - a full-time artist.
first established himself in the Cotswolds where he became a well known and
sought after landscape painter. His

atmosphere of the English countryside, and also to reflect the traditional
values of a rural England now so sadly missed.
now lives with his wife, two Golden Retrievers and two cats in a small North
Devon village, and continues to do every day what he loves best - painting
scenes of time gone by.
