ABOUT

chief-and-me
“I try every day to improve and develop my technique there is no substitute for observation and lots and lots of drawing, preferably en plain airand I am fortunate to have the luxury and the opportunity to observe and study my own horses, and the way they live and interact. I am always working to improve my knowledge and technical skills in all areas of my work and currently I am most fortunate to be mentored by the leading Equine Artist Malcolm Coward HSEA.  I favour oils as I love the feel and texture, and the rich depths of colour that can be achieved using the thinnest of glazes or the heaviest impasto “

I have been a member of the SEA for some years and became a Full Member in 2015. In addition I am currently also their Honorary Secretary and Webmaster. In 2012 I was honoured to be awarded the John Noott Gallery prize for Best Oil Painting at the Annual Exhibition for the painting “Parthenon”
