Original seascape and landscape paintings, greetings cards and colour reproduction prints

I specialise in original seascape and landscape paintings, selling in local galleries etc., & the greetings cards and prints are from my paintings. Although my first degree & work was science based I had been painting on & off since schooldays in 1960’s. I studied a Foundation Course in Art part-time and in 1993 I prepared to start a degree in Fine Art. Just two weeks before the start of term my world came apart when I had a brain haemorrhage & post-operative stroke, which left my right-side paralysed. I was right-handed & it was so frustrating re-learning to draw & paint with my left hand there were times when I almost gave up. So many places are hard to access by wheelchair & painting a view in situ can be quite difficult with everything having to fit on to my chair & be set up one-handed. However I take a camera and sketchbook around with me and back home I can paint my recollection of what I've seen, triggered by the sketches and my collections of photos, some of which may date back to ‘my previous life’. I was featured as a "Success Story" by the magazine "Artists & Illustrators" in February 1998, & Leisure Painter's Online Gallery in February 2022.
