Portrait

Waiting nervously to be taken up for a taste of aerobatics in the Harvard (T-6 Texan) at Sywell Aerodrome.

 

I have always loved painting and drawing all kinds of subjects.  After winning a set of oil paints at school, this soon became my favourite medium, although I also like to paint in watercolour.

Childhood tales of my grandfather's adventures as a flight mechanic for pioneering aviator Sir Alan Cobham, and my father's involvement with the Fairey Delta project, naturally gave me an interest in aviation art and led to joining the Guild of Aviation Artists.

Other favourite subjects are scenes from the age of sail, and western scenes inspired by holidays spent on ranches in Arizona, Wyoming and Texas and touring the western states of the USA.
