Welcome

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. Home is an elderly tug boat up a creek and I blog occasionally about life afloat, sailing, drawing and anything else.

My studio is a converted stable near Martlesham Creek on the lovely River Deben. Do come and visit if you’re in the area (but phone first to make sure I’m there and if you need directions) 01394 549247.

It’s getting to the tail end of the year so hop across to my shop page if you need to start making plans for 2018 – it’s year planner time again!

Do get in touch if you’re interested in having art lessons, commissioning work or talking about art and boats!
