My work is a personal response to landscapes I visit, using pastel, paint or relief printing. I try to capture the 'genus loci' - the spirit of the place. After many years working in education, much of it as a headteacher, I now concentrate on artwork from my studio at home near Exeter. Original pastel and watercolour pieces, hand-printed lino prints and giclee prints are available for sale. Please contact me for more details.
