Me with my daughter and fellow artist Alice Jones.
I was born in Grimsby, England. Once the second largest fishing port of its kind in the world, Grimsby sits directly on the North East coast fringed by what is known as 'The Lincolnshire Wolds'. I studied Fine Art on a Foundation Course at Grimsby Art College back in the late 70's and went on to study at Degree Level at Kingston Polytechnic London and later at Hull University gaining a BA Hons Degree in Fine Art. I have lived and worked in Lincolnshire most of my life and feel a close connection with its unique landscape.
My passion is Oil Painting, painting primarily my local
Landscape (Lincolnshire Wolds). I have lived all my life in and around this
landscape and use it as an inexhaustible and inspiring material for my
painting. I have a deep love of Fine Art stretching back over 40 years now.
Whenever I get the chance I take the opportunity to visit Art Exhibitions and
Galleries both home and abroad. I endeavour to imbue my landscapes
with mood and melancholy saturating the canvas with varying layers of paint in
order to convey tone and texture in what I see.
Remember: Look now while life lasts...
