I settled in Perth in 2000 after 25 years at the London Bar and started to paint seriously. It is now something I try to do every day. I think most artists will agree that it becomes something of a healthy obsession! My preferred media are oil and pastel although I do use watercolour with a sketch book especially when travelling. I enjoy portraiture and urban subjects, café and street scenes with a strong human interest. I am a life member of WA’s oldest art society the West Australian Society of Arts. I am a regular exhibitor in group events and I have had two solo exhibitions. I was a cricketer for many years so painting a bat was fun.
