Soft Pastels
Wildlife, Animals, Pets, Portraits, Figures, Landscapes, Seascapes, Still Life, Fantasy

I am situated within the 'Cheshire Plain' and I have been involved in art, in one form or another, for many years. More recently I have decided to take up painting full-time.

I have experimented with most media and I whilst I enjoy using watercolour and acrylic I find that using soft pastels best suits my style of work. Also if I had to choose just one medium to work with that could be used to paint any or every topic I would choose pastels. Their versatility and colour range is incomparable.

The range of subject which I paint is quite extensive, including land/seascapes, pets, wildlife, portrait/figurative, flowers and fantasy art.

In addition to accepting commissions on a wide range of subjects I offer workshops and tuition in my area, though I can provide the facilities in other places by arrangement.
