Describe the extent of your talent as an artist:
I studied art at Belfast School of Art and at Manchester and Nottingham where I was the first art and design technician in the United Kingdom for the City Technology Colleges at The Djanogly C.T.C college. While an accomplished artist in etching and engraving, acrylic and water colour painting and wood carving, I have painted in oils for many years. My subject matter mainly concentrates on figurative art or portraits, and often relate to experiences from life or from memories of my childhood's whimsical imagination. They all have a story to unfold. I have exhibited in the North and Midlands England and Northern Ireland and have painted private commissions in England, Ireland, U.S.A Canada and China. My art does not seek to shock, affront, distort, deconstruct, or dissolve. It seeks only to invite you to share my world. The world you may enter when you find a forgotten and faded photograph at the back of a drawer or hear an old tune on the radio or a home town accent when you are far from home, distant memories, happy days, a coffee on the pier.
I welcome commissions, and work from photos for portrait or what ever.
