"Detailed, realistic and unique pastel artworks"
I am a retired veterinary surgeon who has become a pastel artist. Born in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, I now live and work in the heart of the Herefordshire countryside. I was introduced to pastels as a teenager by a friend of my father’s and in fact I still have remnants of my first set of pastels. I passed A level art at 16, then went on to complete a veterinary science degree - my understanding of animals allows me to add that something extra to my artwork.

As a pastel artist I feel that pastels have a great vibrancy and richness of colour that is often under appreciated. I work largely from photographs and undertake commission work as well as create artwork in a wide range of subject matter. I like to give each piece a three dimensional effect and detail is of importance to me - each 12in by 16in artwork takes me 25 to 30 hours to complete.

I have completed a large number of works in the past 15 years, many of which can be seen on this website. I admire the work of many artists including the Impressionists, Pre-Raphaelites, David Shepherd, Simon Coombes and many of my contemporaries. I have exhibited widely in Herefordshire and currently have original work exhibited at the Makers Gallery in Crickhowell, Wales. I will also be exhibiting during H-art ( Herefordshire Art Week ) in Kingsland, Herefordshire between the 4th and 12th of September 2021. More news on this to follow.....
