My work

About

I am 74 years old, married for 51 years to Patricia with one daughter Sarah who is also artistic. Have had no formal training even though I from quite young have always sketched, then in my teens started painting. Have relied on photographs for my material and copied a wide range of subjects from portraits, animals, landscapes, still life even reproducing copies of paintings by Toulouse Lautrec. Renoir, Turner as well as cartoon and caricature characters. Had a picture entered by my primary school into a Town Hall Exhibition when I was a pupil and in my teens and early twenties painted commissions for family/friends and work colleagues. Most of them told me that I should be doing that for a living even though they didn’t provide me with the means to do so from the payment for their commissions. My artwork has since then suffered due to a mixture of career, family life and other interests and I have only given it more time since finally retiring only relatively recently. I am hoping to make up for lost time and would still like to make a small mark in the Art community.
