I'm probably better known in Cambridge as an Estate Agent and Surveyor, but, for more trhan 20 years, I have used painting as a means of relaxation and "escape" from the stresses of running a business from which I have now retired. I was born in the City and grew up in the Romsey area before ending my education at what is now the Hills Road V1th form college where I first developed my interest in Art and Painting. Although my career took a very different path, the pleasure I got from painting never really left me and , from time to time, I took up a paintbrush. I have been in Cambridge all my life, but only in the last few years have I really been able to devote any of my spare time to what has become a totally absorbing and very rewarding hobby. I am fortunate enough to have been able to provide my own garden studio and gallery aqt my home, where I can now be found regularly enjoying periods of relaxation. I always have a wide variety of paintings on show and I welcome visitors at any time
