Welcome!

Thanks for stopping by.  I’m a self taught painter in the “naive” style, and a member of the Association of British Naive Artists (ABNA)

I enjoy painting simple, colourful scenes, preferably with a few animals around.  Cats tend to feature a lot, perhaps because with three resident felines (a Havana and two rescues) I’m never short of kitty helpers when the painbox is out.

My second love is the past.  I live in a former Victorian spa town in the Derbyshire Dales, and for much of my working life had an office in the creaky upper floor of a haunted Jacobean country house. How lucky was I!

Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my pictures.
