Welcome to my website. I spend most of my life drawing, or painting, or writing, or teaching other people to paint and draw. I have a particular obsession with boats and the sea, so you’ll see my work in books and sailing magazines, as well as on the walls of my studio in Suffolk.

Obviously all my courses and workshops are suspended for the time being, but I am in the studio most days, so you are welcome to visit if there’s something you’d like to buy – I have disinfectant wipes for door handles and there is plenty of room in the studio to keep a good distance apart! Payment can be made online or via debit card if you’d rather not handle cash.

How to find me

My studio is a converted stable near Martlesham Creek on the lovely River Deben. Do get in touch or come and visit if you’re interested in having art lessons, shopping for unusual gifts, commissioning work or talking about art and boats.  The address is Unit 7, Hall Farm, Church Lane, Martlesham, Suffolk, IP12 4PQ.  Phone first on 01394 549247 to make sure I’m in.
