I am a British artist, and until 2009 I lived in Keswick in the beautiful Lake District of England. But now I live near a small town called Zurgena in the Almeria region of Spain (Andalucia), with my lovely wife Donna.
I have painted and drawn for as long as I can remember, and finally turned professional in 2000. I enjoy painting in watercolours, acrylics, gouache and oils.
I wrote and published the online watercolour course in the Spring of 2005, and in 2006 added the acrylics course. Since then I have written online courses in other media, which are all available on my website.
Since 2005 I have seen thousands of people worldwide learn to paint with me.
I have taught an adult education class in painting for many years, and I have also organised and lead several painting holidays in the UK, in Spain, and in Portugal, taking groups of 6-12 people to wonderful and beautiful locations to draw and paint. I have also tutored classes for The Derwent Pencil Company, and I write regularly for the Leisure Painter magazine.
I believe that anyone can learn to paint if given clear and easy instructions, and I have always tried to motivate and encourage everyone to paint, whatever their ability.
Join me on one of my online courses and see how you too can learn to paint!
