I have created this blog to record my development and progress as a painter.
I have always had an interest in all things visual, and hold a BA 2.1 honours degree in Typography & Graphic Communication from The University of Reading, and an MA in Visual Culture from Bath Spa University. I have earned my living as both graphic designer and illustrator, but spent most of my career lecturing in various art colleges and universities. I took early retirement in 2005 as Head of Graphic Design at what is now University of Wales, Trinity St David, in order to focus on my painting. I now paint almost every day.
I used to paint mainly in watercolour and was elected to membership of The Royal Watercolour Society of Wales back in the early 1990s, but since I retired I work almost exclusively in oils.
Subject matter varies, but I am particularly interested in the rock formations and glorious coastal scenery of the Gower Peninsula close to my home in Swansea. All paintings are for sale unless otherwise stated. Prices range from £125.00 to £500.00. Enquiries: firstname.lastname@example.org
