Artist's StatementAround 2013, after a long career in architecture, as a self-taught painter I commenced life drawing with a group, now known as Berern Life Drawing, and took up landscape painting. I have painted with groups in St. Ives, Cornwall, and the Limousin in France, and spent time in Provence on the C├ęzanne trail. These together with sites in East Anglia have provided motifs for painting and recent work has seen a consolidation of an intimate interest in the commonplace landscape of Cambridgeshire - the streams and rivers, the hydrology that determines its topography. Recent work has centered on local Bourn Valley motifs. Earlier work arose from a fascination with the magnificent tree planting on Sheep's Green and Coe Fen in the centre of the City of Cambridge, and the upstream reaches of the River Cam from Cambridge to Granchester.
