I live in West Wales Pembrokeshire. Creating landscapes, my inspiration comes from the Welsh countryside. Trees flowers hedgerows all contribute to my creativity. Spring breeze and Summer breeze brings about a wonderful odour of these seasons mixed in with a wonderful impact of joy. The sun warming the environment providing the strength of life; the light falling on every part of plants and trees and hence the growth. I am self-taught in my work.

Born and raised in North London and then later in life moved to West Wales. Paint Fashion Images which is my other selection.  My paintings are influenced by Haute Couture. Jacques Fath fashion designer and has a big impact on me with his creativity. His styles of low flowing curves in his dresses from the 1950s has an effect on my paintings. Christian Dior has inspired my paintings as well
