I am an amateur artist and have enjoyed experimenting in various media throughout my life. I have taught drawing, painting and sculpting to primary school pupils. I am inspired by the beautiful countryside with which we are surrounded in Sheffield and the Peak District, but am not averse to foreign climes when the opportunity arises. Having mainly painted in water colour I have recently been trying out acrylics and oils, and particularly like the effects that can be achieved with oils. Attempting semi-abstraction by experimenting with colour and a limited palette is something I’m trying to develop.
