About

Inspired to paint ...

Hundreds of years ago - well, actually, in 1978 - I joined the Wedgwood Art Society, in my home town, Stoke-on-Trent, England. This was my inspiration and motivation to paint.
I started painting in heavy body acrylics and have never moved from this amazingly versatile, yet sometimes tricky, medium. I use stretched canvas or canvas board, and occasionally wood panels, and I paint with brushes and palette knives.

I have exhibited with the likes of Jiri Borsky, Derek Brownsword, Jan Zalud, and Elsie Cheeseman. I've attended workshops at the famous Newlyn School of Art, in Cornwall, (www.newlynartschool.co.uk) and with Mark Lippett, (www.marklippett.com) but I am mainly self-taught.

I draw inspiration from my favourite artists, the great outdoors, the seaside, and the special landscape of The Potteries of North Staffordshire. My family, too, is a constant inspiration. My mother was a free hand pottery painter, my sister specialises in Chinese Brush Painting and my wife, Pam, who draws, is a constant encouragement.

I now work as gallery consultant in an art gallery in Newcastle-under-Lyme (http://trent-art.co.uk) which specialises in original paintings and works on paper by a wide range of Modern British Artists. Selling paintings created by some of the 'greats' is the most wonderful of all inspirations.

When I am not painting I am the author of several blogs:
* The Potbank Dictionary - https://potbankdictionary.blogspot.co.uk/
* The Potteries Bottle Oven - https://bottleoven.blogspot.co.uk/
* Gladstone Pottery Museum Story - https://gladstonepotterymuseumstory.blogspot.co.uk/
