BIOGRAPHY
I took up art as a hobby at age 75 years.  In early 2019, I enrolled in a weekend course in watercolour painting at the University of Victoria and then attended a 3-day program in the summer of 2019 at The Society for Pure Watercolour at Windrush, Cotswolds in the UK conducted by Andrew Hucklesby.  I really like his work.   See www.andrewhucklesby.co.uk.

To-date, I have mostly painted places that I have visited and find memorable.   Most of my artwork will reveal the "great outdoors", because that's where i like to be!  You will mostly find landscapes and seascapes on the West Coast of Canada where I live with a few from the UK where I lived until I was 21 years.  
 
In September 2020, I was accepted into the 100+ year old Victoria Sketch Club (VSC).  In March 2022, I expect to be exhibiting at the Victoria Sketch Club Annual Sale which is planned  at the Glenlyons Norfolk School in Oak Bay.  I will also participate in the 12-month VSC exhibit at BC Government House in Rockland, Victoria starting in January 2022.

50+ paintings are now showing on cwotic.com with designations of those "for sale".

Please be welcome to contact me through the CONTACT links.  Thank you.
