"Purveyor of exquisitely stained pieces of paper"

For 19 years I was a cartoon animator working on children's TV series for BBC, ITV, CH4 and S4C.
I left the industry in 2009 to concentrate on my passion for watercolour painting.
I'm a prolific artist and flood the country with 100's of paintings every year, I'm not afraid to tackle any subject and will paint anything that interests me.
My simple approach is for a faithful but distilled version of the scene in front of me done with (as much as possible) first time applications of paint, I do this with very few materials, 2 brushes, Bockingford paper and just 3 colours.

Past sales include..Polish Embassy in London, The Foreign Office, Lambeth Palace, British Embassy in Latvia, The Royal Ballet School, Guildhall School Of Music & Drama and Greg Stevenson of BBC Four's 'A Pembrokeshire Farm'.
