Mighty Fine Art from a friendly approachable artist.

I'm an award winner you know. Yes 1965. The Hornimans Tea Painting competition! If you type 'Hornimans Tea Painting Competition' into your search engine, a chapter of my autobiography 'Blood, Sweat and Beer' may come up which will explain in greater detail this momentous event in my young life. Suffice to say I won a book token worth 25 shillings (people under 50 may need to Google that) which was about equivalent to a day's pay for my father at the time. From that day I considered myself an artist. I bought a big fat wildlife encyclopedia with my token which further influenced the direction of my fledgling career. There were some other minor awards after that, but few worth a mention. As a serving soldier I did receive a prize for a caricature I created of the regimental sergeant major. For that I gained another award... three days in the guardhouse for insubordination.
I became a full time artist in 2002 and later on in 2012 I added writing to my list of occupations, starting with my autobiography followed by 2 novels to-date. I also like to work with wood and recently I've begun selling some of my carvings and restored vintage pieces.

    An ex-soldier, since leaving the army I've had many occupations from computer analyst to college tutor, lorry driver to milkman. I've been married but didn't like that. I now live with my long term partner and some big dogs on the East Suffolk coast.
