About me

A Short resume of my working life -


I have been in engineering since school days, time served apprentice toolmaker, and have worked for several interesting companies from Scanning Electron Microscopes to the “Atlas Project” the largest machine ever built. The University created a lot of diverse challenges from building innovative research apparatus to the last project I had, I was one of the engineers (Chief Research Engineer) based at the High Energy Group, Cavendish Laboratories,, Cambridge UK on the Atlas project at CERN


 I have been interested in producing art all of my life but never really had the time to do it only snatching moments when I can like a lot of amateur artists. I am completely self taught, having no formal art training, in all the art that I produce and strongly believe in drawing as the essential foundation in all traditional and contemporary art.

I usually sketch and then produce artwork from my sketches with photographs only as a back up to remind me of the situation.

Watercolour is my main form of painting but as you can see from  my gallery page I try all forms of  paint and  materials- not always successfully - a few mistakes here and there.

Botanical Painting - Done and dusted - got my Diploma in July with merit. London Art College.

Diploma Course with the Royal Botanical Gardens Edinburgh - Botanical Illustration

Society of Scribes and Illustrators - Calligraphy Correspondence course started.
