About

Breaking the ties that bind

My whole life has been spent making things. I began as an Engineer, creating technical drawings. Then I changed career and started writing software.

I used to draw and paint many years ago, but life got in the way, as it has a habit of doing. Over the past two years, or so, I have started to draw and paint again.

I am a serious student of botanical art and I take lessons. It is a very exacting and precise field, but it teaches a lot of valuable techniques and skills which are transferable to other media. It has also taught me that patience really is a virtue.

I have sold a number of pictures, on and off, over a period of years. The time has come to take it seriously.
