I am a Lincolnshire artist born in Grimsby in 1962. I've been interested in art from an early age and attended the Grimsby School of Art from 1979-81. Ten years ago I became semi professional in the last 3 years full time . in this time i have grown a very successful souvenir range called 'iconic Lincolnshire' from my paintings of Grimsby's Fishing Heritage, Cleethorpes, Waltham, Louth, Lincoln, Stamford and also the east coast. My original paintings sell in For your walls Gallery, Louth and The Little Red Gallery in Lincoln and Stamford. My souvenir range which comprises of Prints, Greeting cards, Christmas cards, Advent Calendars, Fridge magnets, Coasters etc sell in shops and garden centres in and around Lincolnshire. My preferred medium is Oil and Acrylic. I am influenced by the impressionists and realism painters, Monet, Van Gogh, John Singer Sargent and Millet. I was told by my tutor not to stick to one subject, paint whatever interests you. When I'm painting in Oils or Acrylic I do not have a preconceived idea to how it will look. I let the painting evolve, depending on the subject, which may demand a bold approach or very detailed in the use of colour or tone. Hopefully this comes across in the paintings.
