Occupation artist
Location puerto de la cruz, santa cruz de tenerife, Spain
Introduction I am an English artist living in Spain, painting and collaging in naive style, with a special affinity with Sussex and Derbyshire. I paint mainly in acrylic. My influences are magpie-like: my favourite places, local history, patterns in the landscape, flora, fauna, patchwork, folk art, embroidery, books, Staffordshire pottery, any number of naive and not so naive artists, found objects, my sketchbooks old and new and last but not least my cats and other people's dogs! I have exhibited in group and solo shows in Spain, the Uk and the USA. My pictures are in many private collections in those and other countries as well as in corporate collections such as the Hogg Robinson Group, Casinos de Tenerife and in the Manchester City Art Gallery. I am a member of the Association of British Naive Artists.
