Professional Details

Short Biography

I am a watercolour artist mainly specialing in mountain, rugged coast and wild scenery in the UK and abroad, and have taken painting trekking groups to Ladkh, Nepal, the Andes, Africa and other places. My search for subjects takes me hillwalking, scrambling, caving, backpacking and on occasion canoeing and using other flotation devices. I am especially keen on conserving the natural landscape. As well as books and articles, I do some broadcasting and video production.

Professional Activities

Professional artist and writer, runs painting courses and organises exhibitions.
