After moving from England to California in 1991 I have adapted a life style so different from my life in England. I now live on a 5 acre ranch with our arab horses Rusty and Cody, six chickens and dog Ernie Els! Yes we also love golf! My painting got more serious when I moved to California, I think because of the climate and the slower pace of life. I enjoy so much painting animals and capturing their eyes.My paintings have won awards invarious hometown gallery exhibits and recently won 3 awards at the Agua Dulce Acton art exhibit at the local Agua Dulce vineyard. I have now been given the good fortune of serving customers and my friends to bring their animal family friends to life in my paintings. If I could be there for you in any way, painting your four or 2 legged friends that you have loved or are loving please let me know. I have to now update my profile as I have moved to the beautiful Hill country in Texas and am living in the "cowboy capitol of the world" Bandera. It is a small cowboy town that is full of the most friendliest people you could come across. I can not wait to start painting some of the beautiful countryside and rivers and of course there are horses everywhere to paint!
