I have enthusiastically pursued photography for most of my life, while my formal art education stopped at thirteen years of age. Upon retiring early after a career in the offshore petrochemicals industry, I decided that it was time to pick up a paintbrush again.
My inspiration has always been drawn from the natural world, particularly landscapes and wildlife. This is mostly centred on the moors and coast of the North York Moors National Park, within the boundaries of which is where I live. However, regardless of the subject or medium, what has always been most important to me is the light. It’s always been all about the light.
Here you will find a selection of the fruits of my creative labours. I hope you like at least some of what you see. If not – don’t worry, just move on. There are over 6 billion websites out there, I’m sure you will soon find something that engages you.
Thanks for dropping in.
